  • Q1
    What is the definition of shock?
    Systolic blood pressure < 65 mm Hg
    When you are scared of something
    Lactic acid production due to anaerobic metabolism
    Metabolic supply to tissues does not meet demand
  • Q2
    What are the two pathways that pyruvate can take?
    Lactate production or gluconeogenesis
    Lactate production or glycolysis
    Krebs cycle or lactate production
    Krebs cycle or gluconeogenesis
  • Q3
    Why does shock have increased lactic acid production (besides anaerobic metabolism)?
    Decreased clearance so no increased production
    All of it is from anaerobic metabolism from tissue ischemia
    Epinephrine activation of alpha 2 receptors
    Epinephrine activation of beta 2 receptors
  • Q4
    How is lactate cleared
    Cleared by kidneys and liver
    It is metabolized by the brain
    It is changed back into pyruvate to go into the Krebs cycle
    Hoffman degradation
  • Q5
    Cold shock is defined by…?
    Increased systemic vascular resistance
    Decreased effective intravascular volume
    Decreased or inadequate stroke volume
    Vasoconstriction (both venous and arterial)
