Recognition and management of shock in the pediatric patient


, : Recognition and management of shock in the pediatric patient. Critical Care Nursing Quarterly 20(1): 52-61

Shock continues to be a challenge for health care professionals because shock is not a single pathologic process but a complex series of interrelated events. After respiratory failure, shock is the second most common cause of death in children. The etiology of shock can be classified into three major categories: hypovolemic, cardiogenic, and distributive shock (septic shock). Despite the etiology of the shock state, if left untreated, the overwhelming response of the body to the inadequate perfusion is death. The key to successful management and treatment of shock is early recognition and rapid intervention.

Our environment is stressed with a load of heavy and toxic metals. Microbes, abundant in our environment, are found to adapt well to this metal-stressed condition. A comparative study among five Cupriavidus/Ralstonia genomes can offer a better per...

Almost the entire 16S rRNA gene sequences of some strains of CDC group 1 and group 1-like coryneform bacteria, isolated from human sources, were determined. Comparative analysis of the rRNA sequences data revealed that both groups of coryneforms b...
