Welcome to the overview on responding to shock. In this video, we'll discuss shock management. The goal of shock management is to get oxygen to the tissues and to the organs. This requires having enough oxygen in the blood, getting the blood to the tissues, and keeping the blood within the vasculature. Thus, shock management is dedicated to achieving these three critical goals. To put simply, this means returning the individual to the correct blood pressure and heart rate for their age, restoring normal pulses, capillary refill, and mental status along with a urine output of at least one milliliter per kilogram an hour.
And the upcoming videos, we'll discuss specifics of responding to each type of shock discussed previously. This concludes our overview on responding to shock. Next, we'll review responding to hypovolemic shock
