Assess the situation

Deal with shock first

  • Airway: assessment of whether the patient is awake enough to try to take their own breaths and/or if there is there anything blocking the mouth or nose.
  • Breathing: assessment of the adequacy of breathing and whether it may need to be assisted with mouth-to-mouth resuscitation or more aggressive interventions like a bag and mask or intubation with an endotracheal tube.
  • Circulation: assessment of the adequacy of the blood pressure adequate and determination of whether intravenous lines are needed for delivery of fluid or medications to support the blood pressure.

Wound bad, but not critical so deal with shock first

Deal with Shock

Recognition of Shock

Initially, a flow of adrenaline causes:

  • A rapid pulse.
  • Pale, grey skin, especially inside the lips. If pressure is applied to a fingernail or earlobe, it will not regain its colour immediately.
  • Sweating, and cold, clammy skin (sweat does not evaporate).

Shock is failure of the cardiovascular system to keep adequate blood circulating to the vital organs of the body, namely the heart, lungs and brain.
