    In addition:

    ICP (into BP) ↑BP ↓PR, RR
    SHOCK (just reverse of the ICP) ↓BP ↑PR, RR

    Neurogenic shock...you will have a demarcation line (very obvious) pink above the level of injury pale (almost white) below the level of injury.

    what about interventions/ outcomes for each. NCLEX would probably ask more along those lines no?

    what hospital do you work in? every time I see someone in scrubs it shoots this motivational shock wave through me. It is what motivates me. What area do you work/specialize in?:icon_roll

    Hi! I'm not sure if you are referring to me. But if you are, I worked in an OR specializing in ophtha surgeries before for 2 years, here in the Phils.

    You would most likely see shock questions in the form of prioritization.
    A far as interventions, think about the patho of shock, what it does to the body, and how are you going to stop/fight/attempt to reverse it?
