Define Shock
A condition where insufficient blood flow reaches the body tissues
What are the four stages of Shock?
1= Initial
2= Compensatory
3= Decompensating
4= Irreversible
What are the 4 types of Shock?
1= Distributive Shock
2= Obstructive Shock
3= Cardiogenic Shock
4= Hypovolemic Shock
Define Distributive Shock
The loss of competency of the vasculature.
What are the 3 types of Distributive Shock.
1= Septic
2= Anaphylactic
3= Neurogenic
What causes Septic Shock?
An overwhelming infection leading to vasodilation.
What causes Neurogenic Shock?
It is caused by trauma to the spinal cord resulting in the sudden loss of autonomic and motor reflexes below the injury level.
What causes Anaphylactic Shock?
Caused by a severe reaction to an allergen, antigen, drug or foreign protein.
Define Obstructive Shock
The loss of pathway
(flow of blood is obstructed which impedes circulation)
What causes Obstructive Shock?
1= airway obstruction
2= cardiac tamponade
3= tension pneumothorax
Define Cardiogenic Shock
Failure of the heart to pump effectively
What causes Cardiogenic Shock?
Large myocardial infarction, non-perfusing arrhythmias, cardiomyopathy, congestive heart failure (CHF), cardiac valve problems, trauma, tuberculosis sequelae.
Define Hypovolemic Shock
Loss of volume
(insufficient circulating volume)
What causes Hypovolemic Shock?
Burns, hemorrhage, splentic rupture, trauma, extensive bleeding.
Loss of competency of the vasulature is _______ shock.
Loss of pathways is ______ shock.
Loss of pump action by the heart is _______ shock.
Loss of volume is _______ shock.
1= Distributive
2= Obstructive
3= Cardiogenic
4= Hypovolemic

1. establish oxygenation
2. Stop obvious hemorrhage
3. Gain IV access
4. Administer appropriate fluids
5. Correct metabolic acidosis
6. Monitor cardiac rhythm
7. Insert Urinary catheter
8. Consider PASG
