In brief: Find the cause.
Shock is a general term that refers to a condition where the body is trying desperately to maintain stability of normal vital signs, but failing.
There are several major types of shock, depending on the reason for the condition. Trauma, infection, spinal cord injury, and cardiac failure are some of the more typical reasons. The best treatment differs for each category.
