DU PA Sur-Sho/Tra/In

Duke PA Surgery-Shock, Transfusion, and infection

defined as any condition in which there is inadequate delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the tissues to meet metabolic demands Shock
General signs/symptoms of shock mental status changes, acidosis, oliguria, and poor cutaneous perfusion (cool, pale skin).
a function of the cardiac output and the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood Oxygen delivery
divisions of shock failures of the heart, failures of the blood, failure the vessels
hemodynamic responses to compressive cardiac shock decreased cardiac output, increased heart rate, large increase in LV filling pressures
hemodynamic responses to cardiogenic shock large decrease in cardiac output, increase in filling pressures
hemodynamic responses to hypovolemic shock decreased cardiac output, increased heart rate, large decrease in LV filling pressure, increased systemic resistance
hemodynamic responses to septic shock increased cardiac output, increased heart rate, large decrease in systemic resistance
shock due to pump failure can be due to extrinsic compression of the heart, or intrinsic heart failure
results when compression of the great veins or heart itself retards blood return to the heart cardiac compressive shock
examples of cardiac compressive shock pericardial tamponade, tension pneumo, diaphragmatic rupture, positive pressure ventilation
With cardiac compressive shock,in addition to general signs of shock, physical exam reveals hypotension, distended neck veins, pulmonary rales, Kussmaul's sign, and pulsus paradoxus
rise in JVP with inspiration Kussmaul's sign
exaggerated decrease in systolic pressure with inspiration pulsus paradoxus
definitive treatment for cardiac compressive shock correction of the mechanical abnormality
can result from failure of the heart muscle, arrhythmia, valvular or septal defects, or excessive afterload cardiogenic shock
Physical exam of a patient in cardiogenic shock may reveal signs of compensetory volume overload-distended neck veins, pulmonary rales, extra heart sounds, peripheral edema
in cardiogenic shock due to inadequate pumping, improve pump function with inotropes(dopamine, dobutamine), intra-aortic balloon pump
in cardiogenic shock due to excessive afterload, reduce afterload with vasodilators (ACEI's and nitrates
in cardiogenic shock due to arrhythmias, optimize heart rate and rhythm with beta-blockers, anti-arrhythmics, pacemakers
in cardiogenic shock optimize volume status by being cautious with fluid administration, and use diuretics if in CHF
one of the most common causes of shock encountered in the practice of surgery hypovolemic shock
Hypovolemic shock may be due to blood loss as well as from third spacing, protracted vomiting, diarrhea, sweat
the sequestration of fluid into injured soft tissues or bowel third spacing
hypovolemia leads to decreased venous return to the heart and decreased cardiac output
decreased venous return to the heart preload
mild hypovolemia <20% blood volume loss-decreased pulse pressure, postural hypotension, cutaneous vasoconstriction, collapsed neck veins, concentrated urine, hemoconcentration
moderate hypovolemia 20-40% blood volume loss-thirst, tachycardia, moderate hypotension, oliguria
severe hypovolemia >40% blood volume loss-mental status changes, arryhthmias, ischemic EKG changes, profound hypotension
systolic pressure - diastolic pressure = __ pulse pressure
treatment for hypovolemic shock Large-bore IV. Resuscitation should always begin with crystalloid infusion—30 cc/kg (2 liters for most adults) as fast as possible then titrate against signs of clinical improvement. Blood products may be appropriate in situations of blood loss.
loss of venous tone reults in venous pooling with decreased blood return to the heart (preload) and decreased cardiac output
loss of arterial tone results in decreased systemic vascular resistance (SVR) and hypotension.
neurogenic shock is a failure of the autonomic nervous system due to spinal cord injury or regional anesthetics
injury above the level of __ results in a loss of sympathetic tone and adrenergic stimulation T4
physical signs of neurogenic shock may include warm, flushed skin, and bradycardia
in neurogenic shock the loss of venous tone is exacerbated by the loss of muscle tone
treatment of neurogenic shock IV fluids are the initial therapeutic agent since loss of venous tone results in relative hypovolemia. Peripheral vasoconstrictors are often required
