18 Remember History and Physical often limited by patient’s condition Patient presentation can be variable secondary toSeverity of the perfusion defectUnderlying causePrior organ dysfunctionExam should be tailored to be performed quickly with highest yield for uncovering the cause of shock.
22 Adequate circulating blood volume depends on 3 components; A minor impairment in one can be compensated for by the other 2 for a limited time. Prolonged or severe impairments will lead to SHOCK.
23 An Approach to Shock – Know this! BP = SVR x COBP = blood pressureCO = cardiac output (pump & fluids)SVR = systemic vascular resistance (pipes)
24 If the blood pressure is low, then either the: An Approach to ShockIf the blood pressure is low, then either the:CO is loworSVR is lowBOTH
25 Low SVR There are only a few causes of low SVR. They ALL cause vasodilation:Septic shockNeurogenic (spinal cord injury) shockAnaphylaxis ShockVasodilator (antihypertensive) Posioning
26 Look at and feel the patient! How do you assess SVR?Look at and feel the patient!Low SVR has the features:warm !!!pinkBounding pulseshyperdynamic heart (fast and pounding)
27 Cause of shock (low BP) is then: What if the SVR is high?PalePoor cap refill (>2 seconds)Cool arms/legs (>2 degree C difference)Thready pulses (narrow pulse pressure (incr DBP))Cause of shock (low BP) is then:low CO
28 CO = HR x SV What are factors of CO? CO = cardiac output HR = heart rateSV = stroke volume
29 HR Problems Heart Rate problems are easy to diagnose Rate: bradycardia versus tachycardia
30 Most difficult to diagnose and manage Low SV (stroke volume)Most difficult to diagnose and manage
31 Stroke Volume depends on Preload--is the ventricle full?Hypovolemic ShockObstructive Shock (ie Tension PTX, Tamponade)Cardiac functionSqueezeContractility– can the ventricle contract?Can blood get out? Valve function:normal?regurgitation?stenosis?
32 Perfusion (blood pressure) depends on: BP = CO x SVRCO = HR x SVSV = preload & cardiac contractility-valve
36 Diagnosis of Shock MAP < 60 or decrease of 20 from baseline systolic BP 90 systolic BP > 40 mm Hg from the patient’s baseline pressureShock index (HR>SBP)Clinical s/s of hypoperfusion of vital organs
37 Mean Arterial Pressure MAP is the mean perfusion pressure for the tissuesMost require a MAP of 60 or greater!Dependent only on the elastic properties of the arterial walls and the mean blood volume in the arterial treeMAP = (2 x DBP) + SBP3
38 Pulse Pressure=SBP-DBP Pulse Pressure=SBP-DBP The difference between the systolic (fxn of ejection fraction) and diastolic pressures (function of SVR and distensibility (elastic recoil) of the aortaWideNormal mmHgCommonly seen with fever, anemia, exercise and hyperthyroidismAR (aortic regurgitation) is also a causeNarrowMay indicate an increase in vascular resistance with decreased stroke volume (ie aortic stenosis or decreased intravascular volume)
39 Invasive Markers Global Markers Regional Markers Base Deficit Lactate Gastric pHSublingual CO2
40 Base Deficit Inadequate tissue perfusion leads to tissue acidosis Amount of base required to titrate 1 L of whole arterial blood to a pH of 7.4Normal range +3 to –3 mmol per LElevated base deficit correlates with the presence and severity of shock

97 Diagnosis History and physical alone make the diagnosis Lab values serve no roleHistamine levels are elevated for about 30 min, tryptase for several hours.
98 Treatment Remove the antigen ABC’s IV Fluids, O2, cardiac monitor, pulse oxFirst line Rx:EpinephrineFor severe bronchospasm, laryngeal edema, signs of upper airway obstruction, respiratory arrest or shock: IV epi100 micrograms of 1:100,000 (place 0.1 mL of 1:1000 in 10 mL of NS, give over 5-10 min)If less severe, can give mL 1:1000 SC
99 Treatment 2nd line: H1 blocker: Diphenhydramine 25-50 mg IV H2 blocker: Ranitidine 50 mg or Famotidine 20 mg IV.)Steroids (Methylprednisolone 125 mg IV or Prednisone mg po)AlbuterolFor patients taking Beta-blockers with refractory hypotension, think about glucagon
101 SEPSISSystemic Inflammatory Response (SIRS) manifested by two or > of following:Temp > 38 or < 36 centigradeHR > 90RR > 20 or PaCO2 < 32WBC > 12,000/cu mm or > 10% Bands (immature wbc)
102 Risk factors of Sepsis Extreme age: <1 and >65 years Surgical / invasive proceduresMalnutritionChronic illnessDM, CRF, HepatitisCompromised immune statusAIDS, immunosuppressives, EtOH, malignanciesDrug resistant organisms
103 What is Sepsis? SIRS Sepsis Severe Sepsis Septic Shock Sepsis is the combination of the Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (SIRS) & a confirmed or presumed infectious etiology.Severe Sepsis: SIRS criteria, source of infection and infection-induced organ dysfunction or hypoperfusion abnormalities (sepsis + lactic acidosis/oliguria/AMS/etc.)Septic Shock: SIRS criteria, source of infection, and hypotension not reversed with fluid resuscitation and associated with organ dysfunction or hypoperfusion abnormalitiesA long line sepsis trials…but first, what is sepsis? SIRS, or Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome, is the overall inflammatory response of a host. We often think that “sepsis” implies that someone is close to death. This isn’t true. But they may be…Someone with sepsis can be as benign as a strep pharyngitis with a fever of 102.2, HR of 125, and WBC=16 or it can be a hypotensive patient with meningococcemia who will die in the next several hours.
104 Septic Shock Bacterial, viral, fungal infection “Warm shock” is early stageFever, tachycardia, tachypnoea, leucocytosis,inadequate oxygen extraction (High SvO2, Metabolic acidosis) in infected tissues“Cold shock” is late stage
105 Septic/Inflammatory Shock Signs: Early– warm w/ vasodilation, often adequate urineoutput, febrile, tachypneic.Late-- vasoconstriction, hypotension, oliguria,altered mental status.Monitor/findings: Early—hyperglycemia, respiratoryalkylosis, hemoconcentration,WBC typically normal or low.Late – Leukocytosis, lactic acidosisVery Late– Disseminated IntravascularCoagulation & Multi-OrganSystem Failure.
106 Septic Shock TX Prompt volume replacement - fill the tank Early antibiotic administration - treat the causeIf MAP < 60Dopamine = g/kg/minNorepinephrine = titrate (1-100 g/min)
108 Neurogenic ShockEssential derangement: paralysis of the sympathetic chain which controls vascular tone from injury to thoracic or cervical level spinal cord injury.Produces decreased SVR from loss of vascular tone and bradycardia from unopposed parasympathetic input to SA node.
109 Neurogenic (Vasogenic) Shock Caused by:Spinal cord injury loss of SNSMassive venous pooling & arteriolar dilatationSigns and Symptoms:Hypotension without tachycardiaWarm pink skin from cutaneous vasodilationLow BP w/ minimal response to fluidsAccompanying Neurologic deficitSpinal shock is not Neurogenic shockSpinal Shock: the temporary loss of spinal reflex activity that occurs below a total or near total spinal cord injury
110 Treatment of Neurogenic Shock Increase vascular tone and improve COIncrease preload with fluidsCVPPAWPIncrease vascular toneVasopressorsMaintain heart rateTreat bradycardia if symptomaticMaintain adequate oxygenationWatch with SCI because of the disruption of O2 to the medullaInitiate therapy to prevent DVTSluggish venous flow will increase risk factorsSteroids (Methylprednisolone 30mg/kg over 15 min in first hour, then 5.4 mg/kg/hr x 23 hours)There are contradicting studies, all of which have flawThe symptoms of neurogenic shock typically last 1-3 weeks
112 Adrenal Crisis Distributive Shock CausesAutoimmune adrenalitisAdrenal apoplexy = B hemorrhage or infarctThis is suspected when patient is non-responsive to fluids, vasopressors and antibiotics.Electrolytes may reveal hypoNa+ & hyperK+Steroids may be lifesaving in patient who is unresponsive to fluids-inotropic-vasopressor (hydrocortisone 100mg IV)
113 Vasopressor Agents?Augments contractility, after preload established, thus improving cardiac output.Risk tachycardia and increased myocardial oxygen consumption if used too soonRationale, increased C.I. improves global perfusion
116 Dobutamine -agonist 5 - 20 g/kg/min potent inotrope, variable chronotropecaution in hypotension (inadequate volume) may precipitate tachycardia or worsen hypotension
117 Norepinephrine Potent -adrenergic vasopressor Some -adrenergic, inotropic, chronotropicDose g/minUnproven effect with low-dose dopamine to protect renal and mesenteric flow.
118 Epinephrine - and -adrenergic effects potent inotrope and chronotropedose g/minincreases myocardial oxygen consumption particularly in coronary heart disease
119 AmrinonePhosphodiesterase inhibitor, positive inotropic and vasodilatory effectsincreased cardiac stroke output without an increase in cardiac stroke workmost often added with dobutamine as a second agentload dose = mg/kg g/kg/min dripmain side-effect - thrombocytopenia
121 Calcium Sensitisation by Levosimendan Enhanced contractility of myocardial cell by amplifying trigger for contraction with no change in total intracellular Ca2+Clinical trials statusUltimately, the binding of levosimendan to troponin C evokes a stabilising, prolonged conformational change that occurs when calcium binds to troponin C. This is an enhancement of calcium's effects, and it thus increases the force of contraction. Sensitising the filaments to calcium rather than increasing calcium levels means that there is less potential for arrhythmia and increased contractile force with less energy consumption (i.e., myocardial oxygen demand is not increased).
