Both have low BP and are caused by a volume deficit in the vascular system. Hypovolemic shock can be treated with IV fluids to increase the bp, while hemorrhagic shock needs to have blood transfused as well to increase the BP of the patient. ...Read more

Having said that, hemorrhagic shock is never well-tolerated by anyone - especially the gravid woman and her fetus(es); that is, a pregnant woman can avoid going into hemorrhagic shock due to her increased blood volume, but when she does she gets very sick very quick. ...Read more

What is hemoglobin level during hemorrhagic shock?What level is dangerous?I had the lowest hemoglobin 7.6 in hospital, should I be afraid i got shock?

Shock vs anemia: Hemorrhagic shock results from acute bleeding. In hemorrhagic shock, the hemoglobin is often near normal as you are losing plasma and red cells at the same rate. By contrast, your anemia of 7.6 being relatively stable isn't going to turn suddenly into shock. Your physician needs to find the cause and treat it -- hopefully without your needing to be transfused. ...Read more
