Information on Shock

DescriptionShock is associated with circulatory collapse, where the heart is unable to adequately supply all of the body's tissues with blood. A person with shock appears cold, pale and sweaty, and has a rapid and very weak pulse and irregular breathing. Shock can occur after an injury where significant blood is lost, or severe dehydration due to diarrhea or excessive sweating, among other causes. The medical treatment should be based on the cause, and immediate professional help should be obtained as soon as possible.
Treatment PlanSeek professional care immediately.
