Hypovolemic shock

Condition of severe physiologic distress caused by a decrease in the circulating blood volume so large that the body’s metabolic needs cannot be met.

A condition that occurs when blood in the circulatory system is decreased (e.g., as a result of hemorrhage).

Shock caused by a reduction in blood volume results from hemorrhage or from relaxation of blood vessel walls.

Physical collapse caused by severe blood or fluid loss and circulatory malfunction; symptoms include feeble pulse, rapid heartbeat, clammy skin, and low blood pressure.

Condition where the circulating blood volume is sufficiently reduced such that blood pressure is insufficient to maintain tissue perfusion.

Shock occurring when there is an insufficient amount of fluid in the circulatory system. Usually this is due to bleeding, diarrhea, or vomiting.
