Arteries- atheroma, inflammation, turbulence, aneurysms
Veins- statins, immobility, vein compression
Capillaries

Tumour
Infection (endocarditis)
Atheroma (fatty plaque)
Amniotic fluid
Foreign bodies (drug use talc)

Symptoms of shock

- body organs not receive enough blood and o2 leading to waste product build up
. Low bp (110)
. Tachycardia (90+)
. Rr under 7 over 29
. Low urine output
. Metabolic acidosis
. Hypoxia
. Cutaneous vasoconstriction
. Anxiety agitation

What are the stages of shock

Compensated - non progressive 12-25% bv lost
Non compensated- progressive bv loss 25% over
Irreversible- failure to restore circulation

5

Hypovolemic shock

Not enough blood volume
Increase output of fustulae e.g burns

6
