3. Neurogenic (spinal cord trauma)
4. Distributive (septic, systemic infection)
5. Anaphylactic (drug, allergen, antigen)
6. Obstructive (tamponade, aortic stenosis, pneumothorax, embolism)

Symptoms of shock
Hypotension (SBP <90), tachycardia, cool skin, deep respiration, fatigue, AMS

1. oxygen
2. Stop blood loss
3. Fluids (crystalloids: NS or LR or colloids)
3. Inotropes (meds)
