hemorrhagic shock


Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Legal, Encyclopedia.

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.

hemorrhagic diathesis
a tendency to bleed due to any one or a combination of clotting defects. Occurs, for example, in diseases of liver in which there may be defects in the prothrombin complex, or in fibrinogen or thromboplastin availability. See hemophilia, purpura hemorrhagica, disseminated intravascular coagulation.

hemorrhagic enteritis
an acute, highly fatal disease of turkeys over 4 weeks of age characterized by bloody droppings, a short course and a high prevalence and caused by an adenovirus.
hemorrhagic enterotoxemia
profound toxemia accompanied by hemorrhagic enteritis. It is caused by Clostridium perfringens types A, B, C and E.

neonatal hemorrhagic disease
hemorrhagic disease of the newborn; may be due to maternal isoimmunization, e.g. in pigs. See also umbilical hemorrhage.
hemorrhagic septicemia
a septicemic pasteurellosis of cattle and other ruminants, rarely of pigs and horses. It is caused by Pasteurella multocida type 1 (or B) rarely D or E, and characterized by a sudden onset of high fever, dyspnea, salivation, hot painful subcutaneous swellings and submucosal petechiae and death in about 24 hours. Called also septicemic pasteurellosis, el guedda.
Occurs also in finfish, caused by opportunist bacteria including Aeromonas, Pseudomonas spp.
hemorrhagic shock
see shock.
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.
