    Default get/take

    Dear Teachers.

    Is there a little difference between (1) and (2)?
    If so, which is more natural?

    (1)He is losing a lot of blood ; we must take him to the hospital.
    (2)He is losing a lot of blood ; we must get him to the hospital.

    Both are 'natural', though the second one, (2), 'must get', expresses more of an urgency than does (1).
