Flashcards in Circulatory shock Deck (9)
CV system cannot maintain adequate cellular perfusion
what is the most important indicator of overall prognosis for cardiogenic shock?
what is the primary cause of distributive shock?
what is the classic situation for cardiogenic shock?
large amounts of contractile myocardium are lost or have severely depressed function resulting in reduced CO (decreased LVEF)
what are the etiologies of cardiogenic shock? which is primary?
acute MI (primary)
what is the classic situation involving hypovolemic shock?
reduced circulating blood volume resulting in reduced cardiac filling and decreased CO
what are the two main etiologies of hypovolemic shock?
1. blood loss
2. fluid depletion
what is the effect of acidosis on heart function?
