Beards et al, 1994 Hypovolaemic
ICU Colloid bolus given (14), United Kingdom patients, mechanically prior to cardiac ventilated, with output measurements, pulmonary artery then haemodynamic catheter and femoral parameters measured arterial line.
In the situation of hypovolaemic
shock, a rapid high-dose IV bolus of oxytocin is contraindicated, but an infusion is essential to contract the uterus.
pericardial tamponade, tension pneumothorax, myocardial injury or dysfunction) and a low central venous pressure (<10 mmHg) is suggestive of hypovolaemic
shock, usually from acute ongoing blood loss.
Of all the deaths during or after a CS, one-third were due to hypovolaemic
shock (as a final cause).
True (A) or false (B): The presence of severe malnutrition may influence the rate of fluid administration in the case of hypovolaemic
shock (circulation problems).
While a negligible gradient exists in health, it is an increase in alveolar deadspace in the hypovolaemic
trauma patient that contributes to regional ventilation-perfusion mismatch and the observed Pa-etC[O.
The most serious issue remains bleeding during or after CS--deaths of one-third of all mothers during or after a CS are attributed to hypovolaemic
shock and/or anaemia associated with abdominal or back pain are all possible presentations of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA).
During the period when tongue swelling was prominent, the patient was managed in a relatively hypovolaemic
or euvolaemic state with a central venous pressure of 12 to 16 cm[H.
Children have a greater ability to compensate for trauma-related shock than adults, with hypotension appearing as a late sign of hypovolaemic
Extravasations of plasma may cause hypovolaemia, which may lead to hypovolaemic
shock, especially in children.
A circular from the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Health furthermore restricts the use of HES-containing products to specialist anaesthetists, advising the use of Gclofusine for the 'general resuscitation of hypovolaemic
patients in intensive care' or for the 'acute resuscitation of patients with severe, source-controlled haemorrhagic shock in theatre by a specialist anaesthetist'.
