Abdominal lacerations, ICU/Surgery procedure

Set 2 years in the future.

The character in my story suffers from extensive injuries such as abdominal lacerations, deep and some shallow, injury to the kidneys from being kicked in that region, broken wrist and nose, and fractured ribs.

I tried googling "abdominal lacerations, blood loss and ICU", but nothing helpful came up.

I have a few questions...

1. With all those injuries, would there be internal bleeding? If so, how much?

2. Are the injuries bad enough for the patient to be placed in ICU, or just a regular room to recover?

3. After losing so much blood, mostly before arriving at the hospital, would the patient need to be placed on a breathing machine?
