Despite the score of 15/15 Glasgow Coma Scale and PEARL, the patient health may rapidly worsen.
Most common shock prevalent in trauma relate to haemorrhage included low volume/hypovolemic shock (absolute hypovolemia) emanating from hemorrhage or other significant body fluid loss. high-space or neurogenic shock (relative hypovolemia) emanating from spinal injury, sepsis, or certain drug overdoses, and mechanical/obstructive shock emanating from pericardial tamponade or myocardial contusion. The patient may be experiencing circulatory problems as a result of shock. The patient may not be having enough blood (hypovolaemia) due to the extensive external bleeding (O’Neill, 2005). Increased blood pressure can accelerate bleeding, dislodging soft early clots. Class II shock represents a significant volume loss of about 15% to 30%. This is evidenced by a delay in capillary refill, as well as an increase in heart rate and respiratory rate. The extensive blood loss may have led to profound shock and may easily transit into Class III shock (Americal Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, 2011). The paramedic should run wide-open employing regular, macro-drip, or blood tubing. There is a need to decrease fluid rate by SPB&gt.100.
The unstable nature of the trauma patient requires an early active treatment. Two peripheral IV catheters should be established. The standard early treatment is a 2L bolus with normal saline (NS) as well as IV fluid resuscitation with saline or colloid (500ml 15 minutes). Normal saline is mainly less expensive and compatible with most medications/fluids. The goal of initial fluid resuscitation should be to restore circulating volume to maintain vital organ perfusion (Soreide &amp. Grande, 2001). However, there is evidence that normalizing the blood pressure in the setting of an uncontrolled haemorrhage may worsen the outcome. If the patient is still hypotensive, PRBC’s should
