Compensated shock - Ernest T

This quote was added by user64771
Compensated shock is the first stage of shock that a patient will experience. In this stage of shock, the patient is able to compensate for the underlying issue with mechanisms like vasoconstriction and elevated heart rate. It is typically characterized by a mildly to moderately elevated heart rate. Blood pressure will remain normal due to constriction of blood vessels and an increase in cardiac effort. This stage is the easiest to treat and outcomes will be favorable if caught at this stage.
