Hypotension: There are many causes of hypotension from dehydration to bleeding or an overwhelming infection or sepsis. Often people with significant hypotension can pass out so the first treatment is to lay the patient flat in order to keep the blood going to the brain. Also patients are given lots of fluids to expand the volume.
