Description

This learning module discusses the clinical features of haemorrhagic shock and the strategies used to manage the condition, focusing on the presenting symptoms, classifications, compensatory mechanisms, physiological changes and nursing interventions. Haemorrhagic shock is a condition of reduced tissue perfusion as a result of the inadequate delivery of oxygen and nutrients necessary for cellular function. The condition is secondary to large-volume blood loss, often associated with trauma or complications following surgical or medical procedures. Identifying and stopping the source of the uncontrolled bleeding is essential. Because of the life-threatening nature of the condition, it is important that haemorrhagic shock is identified promptly and appropriate management is commenced without delay.

Objectives

After reading this module you should be able to:
Define haemorrhagic shock.
Describe the distinguishing characteristics of haemorrhagic shock.
Explain the main causative factors of haemorrhagic shock.
Identify the pathophysiological responses secondary to rapid blood loss and exsanguination.
Outline your knowledge in relation to symptom identification and management strategies.
Explain the implications of early identification and medical management of haemorrhagic shock.
