Shock and Shocking! Five different types of shock are seen in critically ill patients. These include septic, cardiogenic, hypovolemic, anaphylactic and neurogenic shock. Every EMS provider should know the signs and symptoms of each type of shock. As well as interventions for reversal. The treatment of shock is always urgent and proper care by EMT’s and paramedics make the difference between life and death. This course reviews the types of shock, identification, and treatment. In the second part of this course, we discuss AICD’s, automatic external defibrillators. These devices are often seen in patients with cardiogenic shock or heart failure.
