    Hypovolemic shock is the result of severe blood/fluid loss causing the heart to inadequately circulate oxygen to the rest of the body (Workman, 2013, pp. 812). In this condition, there is sudden decrease in blood volume within the vascular space causing a drop in mean arterial pressure. This decrease in mean arterial pressure causes a sudden loss in the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood related to the sudden decline in available red blood cells. As the heart is unable to properly pump oxygen…

    Detected changes in arterial gas content (CO2 & O2) and subsequent rises in ventilation are modulated by central command mechanism in the hypothalamus (Eldridge, 1994). There are several respiratory feedback mechanisms responsible for communicating with central command—namely—central chemoreceptors due to arterial pressures of CO2 (PCO2), or peripheral chemoreceptor carotid bodies as the result of changes in pH due fluctuating arterial pressures of O2 (PO2) and PCO2 in arterial blood (Eldridge,…

    Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) is characterized by a decrease in cardiac output (CO) and the consequent decrease in blood flow throughout the body leads to many widespread effects. For example, when CO is too low, the body starts to prioritize and will decrease blood flow to certain organs, such as the digestive viscera, in order to maintain needed blood flow in organs such as the brain. As a result, a person with CHF will have issues with cachexia and malnutrition because the body is not…

    Question 1 According to Mrs Brown’s clinical manifestations it can be diagnosed that she has pulmonary oedema. Congestive heart failure happens when the heart is unable to pump blood productively causing the backup of blood, which increases the blood pressure and causes fluids to collect in the alveoli in the lungs which leads to pulmonary oedema. According to the clinical manifestations Mrs Brown had an increased heart rate of 120 beats/minute, the increased heart rate is the heart beating…
