Some basic medical information to help in understanding the information presented in this topic.
Caused by fast exit of blood from brain to internal organs.
- Wound shock comes from open wounds.
- Hemorrhagic shock comes from internal bleeding.
- Septic shock comes from circulatory failure due to infection.
- Neurogenic Shock is caused by experiencing something unpleasant. It causes the fast exit of blood from the brain to the internal organs causing weakness, shortness of breath, cold clammy skin, sweating, grayness of skin, thirst, and possibly comma and death.
Lump caused by blood leaking from a vessel. A torn vessel may close, while one that is cut may stay open.
- Extradural Hemotoma is blood clot between skull and dura of brain.
- Thrombosis is a blood clot in a vessel.
- Mytoma is blood in muscle tissue caused by a blow. It may cause spasm.
- Peritonitis is free floating Blood, bile, or urine in the peritoneal (body) cavity.
Caused by the brain being shaken with in the skull. It may be mild to fatal depending on the type and number of blood vessels broken. I the brain membrane (dura) ruptures, hemorrhage may cause death immediately or later as pressure builds. Impact oscillations follow path of least resistance becoming concentrated in narrow areas. Spherical shape of skull causes it to compress to a limit and then burst, usually opposite the impact area, with a fracture at the impact area.. When two blows impact on opposite sides, if both strike at same time, greatest injury may be in the middle. If blows strike at different times, each side will be injured. If head is not allowed to roll with a blow or is it is pulled toward a blow, the damage will be greater.
- During a fight, blood drains from the surface of the skin to go to muscles so bleeding is limited.
- Pieces of bone, fat, bile, etc. may get into a blood vessel causing a clot.
