Shock: A state where the body’s organs are not sufficiently perfused with oxygenated blood.
Remember: Hypoperfusion= oxygenated blood not getting where it needs to go
Blood is driven by pressures
Pressure = amount of stuff in a given space
Types of Shock:
MI, Cardiomyopathy, tampenade
Relative vs. Absolute
Same Stuff/ More Space
The circulatory system facilitates the transportation and exchange of oxygen, carbon dioxide, and nutrients.
Red blood cells: Carry oxygen to cell and carbon dioxide away from cells
White blood cells: Play a role in fighting infection and protecting the body against pathogens
Platelets: Help the body form clots to repair damage done to the blood vessels.
