What are the major types of shock?
The main types of shock include:Cardiogenic shock (due to heart problems)Hypovolemic shock (caused by too little blood volume)Anaphylactic shock (caused by allergic reaction)Septic shock (due to infections)Neurogenic shock (caused by damage to the nervous system).
What are the 4 types of shock?
Shock is divided into four main types based on the underlying cause: low volume, cardiogenic, obstructive, and distributive shock.
What is shock characterized by?
Typical symptoms of shock include elevated but weak heart rate, low blood pressure, and poor organ function, typically observed as low urine output, confusion or loss of consciousness. While a fast heart rate is common, those on beta blockers and those who are athletic may have a normal or slow heart rate.
What are the 3 stages of shock?
There are three stages of shock: Stage I (also called compensated, or nonprogressive), Stage II (also called decompensated or progressive), and Stage III (also called irreversible).
How long does shock last for?
Others in several days, some in several weeks. And for some, depending on what they go through, shock can even go on for six weeks or more. Note that it is also possible to experience ‘delayed’ emotional shock. So you might think an event has not upset you, only to feel symptoms days or weeks later.
What does shock feel like?
The symptoms of shock include cold and sweaty skin that may be pale or gray, weak but rapid pulse, irritability, thirst, irregular breathing, dizziness, profuse sweating, fatigue, dilated pupils, lackluster eyes, anxiety, confusion, nausea, and reduced urine flow.
What is the first sign of shock in pediatric patients?
Other general, nonspecific symptoms may manifest in the child in shock. Lethargy, weakness, a sense of malaise, decreased urine output, fussiness, and poor feeding are all nonspecific symptoms that may accompany shock.
How do you identify different types of shock?
Hypovolemic shock relates to the blood and fluids compartment while distributive shock relates to the vascular system; cardiogenic shock arises from primary cardiac dysfunction; and obstructive shock arises from a blockage of the circulation.
How is shock treated?
Anaphylactic shock is treated with diphenhydramine (Benadryl), epinephrine (an “Epi-pen”), and steroid medications (solu-medrol). Cardiogenic shock is treated by identifying and treating the underlying cause. Hypovolemic shock is treated with fluids (saline) in minor cases, and blood transfusions in severe cases.
