In brief: Low bp

Hypovoemic shock is due to loss of circulating blood volume- may occur in severe dehydration, acute blood loss, severe sepsis.
Symptoms/ signs are dizziness, fainting, low blood pressure. Treatment- fluids, blood or antibiotics etc depending on the cause. Tests depend on the cause, blood work, monitor bp, swang ganz catheterization in some case.
