How are hemorrhagic shock and hypovolemic shock different?

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?

All, none.: Pregnant women (in nature's wisdom) are in general more tolerant of acute blood loss because they have increased total blood volume. 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

What is the difference between hemorrhagic and hypovolemic shock?

Bleeding/many causes: Hemorrhagic shock is from bleeding, usually due to a wound from trauma, which can have excessive fluid loss. Hypovolemic shock can have many causes, like not drinking, or dehydration from diarrhea, and also hemorrhage. This is usually less severe, but some examples of diarrhea can be excessive. Both can be seen on the same spectrum of shock or fluid loss with hemorrhagic more severe/urgent. ...Read more

I've heard that bulimics can get hemorrhaging, is this true?

TRUE!: It all depends on the state of your gut and what you are doing to make yourself vomit. Patients with bulemia are not going about weight loss in a rational manner, therefore they may come up with all kinds of ways to induce vomiting. It is possible to tear the esophagus at the gastric junction with violent retching... Look up 'mallory-weiss syndrome'; usually a complication of vomiting in alcoholic. ...Read more
