Hypovolemic Shock
shock caused by severe blood or fluid loss
Hypovolemic Shock Compensation
Liver and spleen add to the blood volume by disgorging stored RBCs and Plasma
Hypovolemic Shock RAAS
RAAS compensates for hypovolemic shock by stimulating ALDOSTERONE release, which RETAINS NA+ and WATER to increase blood volume.
RAAS > Aldosterone > ↑ Na+ and H20 > ↑ Blood Volume

Shock (Circulatory)
serious, life-threatening medical condition defined as an inadequate perfusion of tissues which is insufficient to meet cellular metabolic needs.
Neurogenic Shock
Neurogenic shock is the rarest form of shock. It is caused by trauma to the spinal cord resulting in the sudden loss of autonomic and motor reflexes below the injury level. Without stimulation by sympathetic nervous system the vessel walls relax uncontrollably, resulting in a sudden decrease in peripheral vascular resistance, leading to vasodilation and hypotension
Vasogenic Shock
shock exists because of the severe reduction in effective circulating blood volume caused by sequestration of blood and other fluids in the vascular system and their withdrawal from the circulating blood. Is the classical shock of traumatic injury, burns, uterine prolapse, extensive surgery.
Teacher: "Example: Spinal nerve impulse causing vasodilation"
