Irreversible shock - Ernest T

This quote was added by user64771
Irreversible shock is the third stage of shock. It occurs when the body's regulation mechanisms are overwhelmed and perfusion ceases to be adequate to maintain life. In this stage the patient's heart rate, respiratory rate, and blood pressure will typically exhibit a precipitous drop. This event is often referred to as "crumping" or "crashing." Irreversible shock always leads to clinical death. And while resuscitation efforts can bring the patient back, outcomes are typically not favorable.
