Hypertensive crisis is defined as a severe elevation in blood pressure (systolic
BP >179 mm Hg, diastolic BP >109 mm Hg), which may or may not
lead to organ damage. There are two types of hypertensive crisis:
Most common sites of epixtasis, the site is the anterior septum, where three major blood vessels enter the nasal cavity:
Lower than normal plasma pH (below 7.4) due to increased hydrogen ion concentration.
There are four main types of shock categorized by the causes
cardiac tamponade; tension pneumothorax; pulmonary or air
due to obstruction of great vessels or heart that impedes the blood flow
Distributive shock is caused by peripheral vascular dilatation resulting in drop in peripheral resistance.
Atherosclerosis is the primary cause of ACS
Management is often based on the cause of the shock or the type of shock.
