    If bleeding is in continuous (profuse having pressure) manner then it is from artery.
    But in case of slow bleeding, it is from venous supply

    arterial blood is bright red and comes in spurts. apply a tourniquet quickly, before you bleed to death! go to ER for transfusion and stitches. venous blood is darker and comes out as an even flow. apply pressure for at least 5 minutes, then put on a dressing. go to ER to get stitched up if needed.

    Bleeding from an artery will be bright, cherry red in colour, coming out like a jet, some times in a pulsating manner which is soon associated with severe haemorrhage, shock, collapse and some times death, depending on the type of the vessel involved.etc., This requires most immediate attention to save life.
    On the other hand a venous haemorrhage is more common, less serious though a little profuse some times, it is more blueish dark red, and gives a oozing appearance. However this condition also may be fatal if neglected and is to be attended immediately.

    In vertebrates and other hemoglobin-using creatures, arterial blood and capillary blood are bright red, as oxygen imparts a strong red color to the heme group. Deoxygenated blood is a darker shade of red; this is present in veins, and can be seen during blood donation and when venous blood samples are taken.
    The blood from an artery comes out with force intermittently. In the case of bleeding from the vein, it will take more time to stop bleeding.
