345 Possible Causes for Hypothermia, Hypovolemic Shock

  • Acute Gastroenteritis

    Severe volume depletion can cause bradycardia; deep, erratic respirations; and hypothermia. 2[] Standardised protocol had slower IV fluids and emphasis on oral rehydration, standard antibiotics and micronutrients and standardised management of hypoglycaemia and hypothermia[]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    shock .[] As cortisol levels remain low, patients may develop severe hypotension, vascular collapse, acute renal failure, and hypothermia.[] […] according to the criteria of Saez-Llorens as: hypotension or poor capillary refill responding to fluid or pharmacological intervention in the presence of hyperthermia or hypothermia[]

  • Panhypopituitarism

    shock due to increased vascular permeability.[] A 21-year-old man presented with headache, hypotonia, hypothermia, and somnolence, deteriorating to a Glasgow Coma Scale score of 3 within days.[] […] main cause of morbidity; the most dangerous complications are adrenal crises, which occur if cortisol levels do not meet the body’s acute demand [ 5 ], possibly leading to hypovolemic[]

  • Addison's Disease

    Presumably, Addisonian crises prompted hypovolemic shock and blood transfusions, which were responsible for horizontal HIV infection.[] This may exhibit itself as confusion and disorientation, epileptic fits, hypothermia, and even coma.[] The chance of hypovolemic shock accompanying a crisis is greater in patients with primary Addison, lacking mineralocorticoids (case A).[]

  • Addisonian Crisis

    Addison's Disease Acute adrenal crisis (Addisonian Crisis / Acute Adrenal Insufficiency) Hypovolemic Shock What are the symptoms of Addison’s disease and an adrenal crisis[] On presentation, the patient will have mild hypothermia, hypoglycemia, and hypotension. The team will have to initiate fluid resuscitation and an initial workup.[] […] infiltrative disorders Tuberculosis Physical: Unexplained shock, usually refractory to fluid and pressor resuscitation Nausea, vomiting, abdominal or flank pain Hyperthermia or hypothermia[]

  • Hypovolemic Shock

    Hemorrhage is the most common cause of hypovolemic shock.[] […] treated with damage control resuscitation principles including limited crystalloid, whole blood or balance blood component transfusion to permissive hypotension, preventing hypothermia[] Keep the individual warm to avoid hypothermia from developing Avoid providing the individual with fluids to drink orally Remember not to elevate the head or remove any debris[]

  • Accidental Hypothermia

    shock impairs their thermoregulatory system, are also at elevated risk for death if hypothermic.[] Accidental hypothermia is known to be a hazard to elderly people in temperate and cold climate.[] shock may manifest after cessation of the hydrostatic pressure exerted by the water upon the body. 39 There are examples of victims apparently stable and conscious after[]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    Hypovolemic, hemorrhagic • Septic-especially gram negative • Burns • Massive aspiration of gastric contents (Mendelssohn’s Syndrome) • Acute pancreatitis • Heroin/methadone[] Therapeutic hypothermia was applied for 24 hours with improved oxygenation.[] For example, patients with hypovolemic shock should be quickly identified and treated with rapid volumetric replacement, in order to minimize the impact on the evolution and[]

  • Adrenal Destruction

    shock Nausea/vomiting, abdominal pain, tenderness and guarding Diarrhea Anorexia, weight loss Confusion, somnolence In severe cases, delirium or coma Signs & Symptoms of[] […] steroidogenesis Empty sella syndrome Autoimmune destruction Addisons's disease Traumatic destruction Trauma is a major cause of adrenal insufficiency Environmental factors Hypothermia[] As cortisol levels remain low, patients may develop severe hypotension, vascular collapse, acute renal failure, and hypothermia.[]

  • Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis

    shock with renal failure, multiple organ dysfunction High risk for bacterial infection Main cause of death is sepsis , most often by Staph aureus and Pseudomonas aeroginosa[] A positive-pressure environment (to decrease infection), with a temperature of 30 degrees Centigrade (to mitigate against hypothermia), is also recommended.[] […] and protein loss, electrolyte imbalances, bleeding, evaporative heat loss with subsequent hypothermia, insulin resistance, hypercatabolic state, infection and bacteremia, hypovolemic[]
