How are hemorrhagic shock and hypovolemic shock different?

Shock: Hemorrhagic shock occurs with a loss of blood and hypovolemic shock can occur with fluid losses, from diarrhea for example, without the loss of blood. 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

What females are more tolerable to hemorrhagic shock in pregnancy?

What females are more tolerable to hemorrhagic shock in pregnancy?
