Description:
As a final common pathway or numerous disease states, the early clinical signs of shock can be somewhat non-specific, and as such, can be a contributing factor to the high mortality rates for certain kinds of shock. The nurse can play a key role in identifying shock by the pairing the clinical history with early recognition of symptoms. With high mortality rates for septic shock, which is is on the increase, and even higher mortality rates for cardiogenic shock, every nurse needs to know the differences between the several kinds of shock that may present in patients, regardless of the setting. This webinar series will review pathophysiology, signs, symptoms, the objective of early, acute and intensive treatment, and various nursing interventions.
