Freezing will not happen until the temperature drops to freezing. On earth at sea level this is not very quickly even in snow.

The effects of decompression at altitude are well known. Consider them similar or worse where there is absolutely no pressure. The pessure behind the lungs for instance a little wind in the gut, would blow the lungs out of your nose and mouth.

Thats if they have not left through your anus. They might also leave through cuts or abrazions though you'd have to guess how large such superficial damage need be.

The same goes for blood in the vicinity of an opening, it would be less explosive obviously as there is no air in the circulatory system.
