There are many types of shocks, let’s discover the most important ones
The types of shocks that exist are different and vary according to the situation you are in. Let's find out which are the most common and how to recognize them.
When we talk about types of shock we mean a state in which the body is upset by a reduced supply of oxygen and blood. A process that leads to a progressive dysfunction and that if not treated in time can be dangerous for those who suffer from it.
Shock in medicine are usually classified on the basis of a whole series of parameters that allow them to be recognized first and foremost and to distinguish them from each other. Here, then, are the main ones and how they differ from each other.
Definition of existing shocks
Among the many types of shock that exist there are hypovolemic shock (which can be haemorrhagic or non-haemorrhagic), distributive shock (which includes septic and anaphylactic shock), obstructive shock (such as pulmonary embolism or tamponade. cardiac) and cardiogenic shock.
Regardless of the cause of the shock, if left untreated the results can be severe. This can in fact evolve from a compensated phase to a progressive one that can become decompensated and irreversible.
This is why, at the first signs of shock it is very important to contact your doctor immediately or, if needed, to the emergency room. Only in this way can a solution be found.
What are the symptoms to recognize
Among the symptoms that may indicate the presence of shock are breathing difficulty, tachycardia, reduction of blood pressure, problems with consciousness, etc …
In the presence of these symptoms it is very important to ask for help even urgently so that you can undergo certain tests. These include blood pressure measurement, heart pump and circulating blood. Through the evaluation of vital parameters it is in fact possible to understand if a person is in shock and which one he is experiencing. Consequently, it is therefore possible to resort to the first timely treatments capable of decreasing the symptoms and, in some cases, even saving the life of those who are suddenly in shock.
