Shock management l.jpg

Shock -- Management

Five major principles

  • Prompt recognition.

  • Initial supportive management.

    • Airway

    • Volume replacement

    • Cardiovascular drugs

  • Determine & management primary problem leading to shock.

  • Management of complications.


Shock volume replacement l.jpg

Shock – Volume replacement

  • Position:

    • FEET UP / HEAD FLAT OR 30 DEGREES

    • Not use Trendelenberg position

  • Vascular access

  • If no evidence of cardiogenic pulmonary edema, trial of volume expansion.

  • Initially, 500-750 of colloid or 1-2 litres crystalloid during the first hour.


Shock volume replacement26 l.jpg

Shock – Volume replacement

  • Rate and type of on-going fluid administration depends on:

    • Clinical scenario - Clinical response

  • Presence of pulmonary edema (cardiac or non-cardiac) is strong contraindication to more fluid admin without more hemodynamic info.


Shock cardiovascular drugs l.jpg

Shock – Cardiovascular drugs

  • Severe BP drop is disasterous to brain and heart. Use vasopressor initially, even in hypovolemic shock, in order to keep MAP >50-60 until caught up withvolume.

  • Dopamine is initially used often.

  • Switch early to norepinphrine or even start with it. Some studies show greater benefit in renal perfusion and cardiac function that with dopamine.


Shock management use of vasopressors l.jpg

Shock -- ManagementUse of vasopressors

  • Dopamine

  • Norepinephrine

  • Dobutamine

  • Epinephrine (anaphylactic shock)

  • Dopexamine (dopa 1,2, and beta 2)

Syncope diagnostic objectives l.jpg

Syncope Diagnostic Objectives

  • Distinguish ‘True’ Syncope from other ‘Loss of Consciousness’ spells:

    • Seizures

    • Psychiatric disturbances

  • Establish the cause of syncope with sufficient certainty to:

    • Assess prognosis confidently

    • Initiate effective preventive treatment


Syncope basic diagnostic steps l.jpg

Syncope Basic Diagnostic Steps

  • Detailed History & Physical

    • Document details of events

    • Assess frequency, severity

    • Obtain careful family history

  • Heart disease present?

    • Physical exam

Sudden cardiac arrest


What is sca l.jpg

What Is SCA?

  • Electrical system in heart malfunctions
