What Is The Difference Between Toxic Shock Syndrome And Septic Shock
They're related.: Toxic shock syndrome is a specific cause of septic shock. Tss is caused by staph and sometimes strep bacteria which produce a toxin that can injure many organs. Septic shock is when an infection overwhelms the immune system and causes exaggerated inflammation usually due to bacterial infection, but sometimes viruses or fungal infections as well. If not corrected it has a high fatality rate. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Blood pressure: Sepsis is the body's generalized inflammatory state as a response to an infection. Severe sepsis is when 2 organ systems begin to fail due to sepsis. Septic shock is when you have sepsis and your blood pressure remains low despite being given adequate IV fluids. A medication called a "vasopressor" can then be required to support your blood pressure to safe levels. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
No: Hypovolemia is mostly from loss of volume that include body fluid, not drinking enough and haemorragic shock is from loss of blood volume loss. You can say that haemorragic shock is a type of hypovolemic shock due to blood loss. Treatment of hypovolemic shock differ depending on etiology. If its due to fluid loss, fluid replacement is the treatment. ...Read more
Several days/weeks: If the treatment is intensive before it becomes a full blown cardiac emergency- days. If ICU care is involved, then weeks after antibiotics, blood replacement, and sometimes d.I.C.(clotting problems) occasionally, if the diagnosis is missed or not treated soon enough, death is the result. ...Read more
As follows: Shock is usually a diffuse dysfunction in bodily organ systems due to vascular collapse, associated with low blood sugar or low blood pressure, and secondary complications. Coma merely implicates loss of consciousness and lack of responsivity to stimuli, and can be caused by mainly disorders, including trauma. ...Read more
TSS: High fever, vomiting, diarrhea, mental changes and rash, often on extremities and face. This progresses to shock and may be fatal, it is generally due to toxin production by either staph or strep. There were a series of cases associated with tampon use in the 1980's which rapidly tapered off with changes in the make-up of the vaginal inserts. Not a very common syndrome, but quite severe. ...Read more
Cill, fever ? pain: It starts as any bacterial infection but enters the blood stream rapidly. U are sick changing rapidly 4 the worse. Without IV antibiotics fast, you get 2 a stage of toxic shock and vital organs begin 2 shut down and death follows. So with any rapidly changing chill, fever, body aches that r increasing by the minutes 2 an hour, head 2 an er. ...Read more
Cardiogenic shock: Shock is a very severe circulatory impairment where the body isn't getting the cardiac output it needs to function. Cardiogenic shock is when the heart is the cause of the shock. CHF is a less severe heart dysfunction characterized by fluid retention in the lungs and sometimes peripheral tissues. Cardiogenic shock can be the end stage of chf. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pressure / blood los: Hypovolemia means not enough fluid in the body. After trauma, this usually means blood loss from internal bleeding, fractures or external cuts. Shock means not enough blood and oxygen getting to tissues in the body. Again, this is usually due to blood loss in trauma and results in a low blood pressure. There are other uncommon causes of shock like spinal cord injury, but they are rare. ...Read more
Very sick: Usually fever, very high >102, rigors (not just chills like the flu), low blood pressure, low urine output. It progresses rapidly and can be life-threatening. It can come from an infection in the vagina that gets into the pelvis or from a rapidly spreading skin or soft tissue infection, that is extremely painful-not just a bit painful. Seek attention immediately. ...Read more
What is the clinical difference between hypovolemic shock and amniotic fluid embolism during c section?
Similar but differen: Hypovolemic shock is blood and fluid loss usually from bleeding causing severe low BP and cardiac arrest from loss of perfusion. Amniotic fluid embolism leads to low BP from allergic vasodilation and then bleeding from dic (disseminated intravascular coagulation) which results in hypovolemic shock and cardiac arrest. The mechanisms are similar but different. ...Read more
