Shock can be classified into different types based on the cause and effect: hypovolemic, anaphylactic, and cardiogenic shock, to name a few.
- Hypovolemic shock happens when the circulating blood volume is very low and cannot perfuse the organs adequately. This may be caused by major blood loss during injuries or extreme diuresis.
- Anaphylactic shock happens during allergic reactions and there is systemic vasoconstriction and constriction of the airways. This causes poor blood flow to the organs and other parts of the body.
- Cardiogenic shock happens during heart failure and the heart is unable to pump blood adequately to the body, causing poor perfusion of the organs and other structures.
