Shock

Shock happens when your blood pressure is too low and not enough blood and oxygen can get to your organs and tissues. Causes of shock include internal or external bleeding, dehydration, burns, or severe vomiting and/or diarrhea. All of these involve the loss of large amounts of body fluids. Shock often accompanies injury. Specific types of shock include: -Hypovolemic shock, caused by internal or external bleeding. -Septic shock, caused by infections in the bloodstream. -Anaphylactic shock, caused by a severe allergic reaction. -Cardiogenic shock, caused by the inability of the heart to pump blood effectively. -Neurogenic shock, caused by extreme emotional upset due to personal tragedy or disaster. Symptoms of shock include cold and sweaty skin, weak but rapid pulse, irregular breathing, dry mouth, dilated pupils and reduced urine flow. Shock is life-threatening and it is important to get help right away. Treatment of shock depends on the cause. National Institute of General Medical Sciences.  [from MedlinePlus]

Toxic Shock Syndrome

A severe illness caused by infection with staphylococcus aureus and characterized by high fever of sudden onset, vomiting, diarrhea, and myalgia, followed by hypotension and in severe cases, shock; a sunburn-like rash with peeling of the skin, especially of the palms and soles, occurs during the acute phase. [from NCI]

Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome

A serious condition in which there is inflammation throughout the whole body. It may be caused by a severe bacterial infection (sepsis), trauma, or pancreatitis. It is marked by fast heart rate, low blood pressure, low or high body temperature, and low or high white blood cell count. The condition may lead to multiple organ failure and shock. [from NCI]
