    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.

As the heart is unable to properly pump oxygen…

This will cause the blood to have a decreased pressure circulating the body, but the internal pressure within the heart will increase. As a result the heart cannot keep up with supplying the body enough oxygen and nutrients that it depends on. So the chambers of the heart will stretch due to the increase in pressure to try and hold more blood to pump through the body or may become stiff…

Hypervolemia is often linked with sodium depletion, and is distinctly different from dehydration. Causes include loss of blood, loss of plasma, and loss of osmolytes via diarrhea and vomiting. It is recognized by tachycardia and diminished blood pressure, as…

    Merriam-Webster defines hypothermia as a condition in which the temperature of the body is very low. This condition is a medical emergency that occurs when the body loses more heat than what it is able to produce; hence, the body temperature decreases. The part of the brain called the hypothalamus is responsible for controlling body temperature; therefore, hypothermia is the result of the dysfunction of the hypothalamus. In order for a person to become hypothermic, their body temperature must be…
