  • Indications for blood transfusionsacute hemorrhageanemiableeding disordershematological diseases

  • Acute bleeding

  • Shock

  • DefinitionAcute state in which tissue perfusion is inadequate to maintain the supply of oxygen and nutritients necessary for normal cell function, which results in widespread hypoxia.

  • Reasons for inadequate tissue perfusionA decreased circulating blood volume hypovolaemic shockA failure of the heart to pump effectively cardiogenic shock and obstructive shockA massive increase in peripheral vasodilatation neurogenic shockCombination septic shock, anaphylactic shock

  • Stages of shockInitial stage anaerobic metabolismCompensatory stage centralisation of circulationProgressive stage increased acidosis, leakage of fluid from the capillaries and formation of microthrombesRefractory stage

  • Classification of shockHypovolaemic shockCardiogenic shockAnaphylactic shockSeptic shock Neurogenic shock

  • Hypovolaemic shockHaemorrhage

    Plasma loss

    Extracelular fluid loss

  • Symptoms of hypovolemia according to blood loss

  • Estimated blood loss in trauma

  • Signs of haemorrhagic shockPale, cold, clammy skin, decreased capilary refill Rapid, weak and thready pulseThirstDecreased urine productionIncreased respiratory rateChange in mental status late sign

  • First aidPrevent further blood lossAntishock or autotransfusion positionActivation of emergency servicePrevention of hypothermiaPrevention of positioning traumaTreatment of other injuries, immobilisation of fracturesNil by mouth, no oral or i.m. medication

  • Medical treatmentIntravenous accessSurgery Fluid replacementArtificial ventilationPharmacological support of shock organsMonitoring: BP, P, SaO2, CPV, urine output

  • Cardiogenic shockHeart failure, cardiomyopathyDecreased cardiac outputFirst vasoconstriction, next vasodilatation due to acidosisPulmonary oedemaCold, clammy and cyanotic skinMortality 80 per cent

  • Anaphylactic shockSevere allergic reactionDegranulation of mast cellsVasodilatation, increased vascular permeability, oedema, bronchospasm

  • Septic shockBacteria or bacterial toxinsReleased histamine and other mediators of inflammationOxygen demand supply mismatchVasodilatationTachycardia, hypotension, fever of hypothermia

  • Neurogenic (spinal) shockLoss of sympathetic nerve activityMassive vasodilatation
