A trauma patient with suspected internal hemorrhage and inadequate breathing requires

A trauma patient with hypotension secondary to internal hemorrhage should receive IV fluid boluses in order to

Calcium channel blockers
Confusion, a sustained heart rate greater than 120 beats/min, and a respiratory rate of 32 breaths/min are MOST consistent with class ___ hemorrhage?
In contrast to a patient with compensated shock, a patient with decompensated shock would be expected to present with
mottled skin and dilated pupils.
Which of the following components is LEAST crucial to the continuous circulation of oxygenated blood throughout the body

Which of the following types of shock is caused by poor blood vessel function?
If you discover minor external bleeding during your primary assessment of a patient, you should

You are treating a 20-year-old man with a large laceration involving the brachial artery. The patient is confused, is pale, and has weak peripheral pulses. Your initial attempts to control the bleeding have failed. You should
apply a proximal tourniquet, administer high-flow oxygen, transport, and establish vascular access en route.
Afterload is defined as the
pressure in the aorta against which the left ventricle must pump.
Hemoglobin functions by
binding to oxygen that is absorbed in the lungs and transporting it to the tissues.
