How do the blood volume, blood pressure, heart rate, and stroke volume change during septic shock?
Scenario: T. J. and Tyler were building a treehouse.
While searching for a board in a
pile of used lumber, T. J. stepped on a
rusty nail that penetrated deep into his
foot, causing it to bleed. Neither T. J.
nor Tyler wanted to tell their parents
about the accident, but after three days,
T. J. developed septic shock. His foot
had become infected and the infection
had spread into his bloodstream. After
reading this chapter and recalling information
about the structure and function
of the heart described in chapter 20,
explain how T. J.’s blood volume, blood
pressure, heart rate, and stroke volume
changed due to septic shock. Also,
explain how blood fl ow in the periphery
changed and how it affected T. J.’s
appearance. Finally, explain the
consequences if T. J.’s blood pressure
remained abnormally low for
How does blood flow in the periphery change in this scenario? What would be the consequences if the blood pressure remained abnormally low for a prolonged period of time?
