Non-pneumatic anti-shock garment to stabilize women with hypovolemic
shock secondary to obstetric hemorrhage.
The commonest type of hyponatremia noted in our study was euvolemic hyponatremia (71%) followed by hypervolemic (27%) and hypovolemic
We have used abdominal binder as an anti-shock device to reverse shock and decrease bleeding among women with moderate and severe obstetric haemorrhage and hypovolemic
shock due to uterine atony.
If a trauma patient is hypothermic (temperatures of <35[degrees]C) at admission or requires emergency surgery for hypovolemic
shock, we suggest the routine use of an esophageal thermometer, accompanied with the use of the Swiss staging model of hypothermia to prevent overlooking hypothermia.
hyponatremia is a frequent condition in paediatric patients and isotonic or hypertonic saline solution is still the mainstay of treatment (1,2,3,4,5,6,7).
In our patient, the probable cause of hypovolemic
shock could be severe pain and poor compliance with her medications.
If dehydration is left untreated, it can result in hypovolemic
Now that obstructive and cardiogenic shock have been ruled out, we consider that both of the only remaining causes (hypovolemic
and distributive) require fluids.
Aguirre said cause of death was dehydration, hypovolemic
shock and diabetes type 2.
This is a case report of a 34-year-old woman who was referred to the obstetrics emergency department with sudden abdominal pain and in a state of hypovolemic
On arrival to the NSICU, he was in hypovolemic
shock (overall 3.4 L negative fluid balance in past few hours) from clear polyuria.
We present a very interesting case of a patient in hypovolemic
shock secondary to a gastrointestinal (GI) bleed with black esophagus that, due to contraindications, required total parenteral nutrition (TPN) resulting in complete resolution of the esophageal mucosa necrosis.
