Stabilisation of the emergency patient Part II: Circulation


Sigrist, Nadja (2011). Stabilisation of the emergency patient Part II: Circulation. European Journal of Companion Animal Practice (EJCAP), 21(2):133-141.

Abstract

Stabilisation of the emergency patient follows the ABC (airway-breathing-circulation protocol). Following the stabilisation of respiration and provision of oxygen-saturated blood, perfusion must be ensured. Perfusion is evaluated according to heart rate, pulse quality and rate, mucous membrane colour and capillary refill time, and temperature. Shock is defined as decreased perfusion leading to hypoxia. Depending on the cause and pathophysiologic processes, hypovolemic, obstructive, distributive or cardiogenic shock can be differentiated. All lead to a decrease in cardiac output, followed by decreased perfusion of tissues and subsequent cellular hypoxia. Therapy includes oxygen supplementation, fluid resuscitation with bolus therapy of isotonic crystalloid or colloid solutions, analgesia and haemorrhage control. Intensive monitoring is required for successful stabilisatio

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
