hemorrhagic shock

(redirected from haemorrhagic shock)

hem·or·rhag·ic shock

hypovolemic shock resulting from acute hemorrhage, characterized by hypotension, tachycardia, pale, cold, and clammy skin, and oliguria.

hemorrhagic shock

shock associated with the sudden and rapid loss of significant amounts of blood. Severe traumatic injuries often cause such blood losses. This results in inadequate perfusion to meet the metabolic demands of cellular function. Death occurs within a relatively short time unless transfusion quickly restores normal blood volume. Hemorrhagic shock often accompanies secondary shock. Compare primary shock.

Called also septicemic pasteurellosis, el guedda.
Occurs also in finfish, caused by opportunist bacteria including Aeromonas, Pseudomonas spp.

hemorrhagic syndrome
a widespread disease of domestic fowl causing significant losses due to death in birds about 5 to 9 weeks of age. The cause may be multifactorial but viruses are suspected to play an important role. Characterized by clinical anemia, leukopenia, anemia and hemorrhages in all tissues.
