In brief: Shock

Shock leads to low BP and spasm of peripheral blood vessels to redirect blood to the more vital organ systems.
This leads to cold clammy skin, fast heart rate, and light headedness as the body tries to compensate. Urine output falls and mental processes and consciousness start to weaken.
