  1. Hypotonic shock
  2. Decompensated shock
  3. Patho of Pulmonary Thromboembolism
  4. Compensated shock
  5. Hydrostatic Pressure
  1. a when early shock fails: hypotension occurs, BP and CO fall. Tachypnea and SOB lead to heart failure and pulmonary edema causing anoxia, lead to ARDS.
  2. b deep venous thrombi is usual cause; often following immobilization, i.e. bed rest from hospitalization
  3. c a set of adaptations occur to compensate for the circulatory imbalance. i.e. tachycardia, vasoconstriction of peripheral arteries, and reduced urine production
  4. d loss of peripheral vascular tone and pooling of blood in dilated peripheral blood vessels
  5. e major factors PUSHING fluid out of vessel

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. ischemic necrosis of tissue distal to an area of arterial occulsion or in an area of obstructed venous outflow
  2. loss of blood volume; i.e. hemorrhages, water loss from burns, vomitting/diarrhea
  3. a detached solid, gaseous, or liquid mass that is carried by the blood from site of origin to a distal site. May lodge in pulmonary or systemic circulation.
  4. hypoperfusion of tissues; the circulatory system can no longer supply nutrients and oxygen to peripheral tissues.
  5. -20 to 25 per 100,000 PTs have it
    -fatal if 60% of circulation is obstructed

5 True/False questions

  2. Sequelaesudeen death, clinically silent; resolution, organization, dyspnea, pulmonary infarct


  3. Oliguriaconstriction of the renal cortical vessels reduces GFR. results in renal output.
