What are the symptoms of hemorrhagic shock?

Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Family Practitioner

The severity of the symptoms of hemorrhagic shock correlates with the extent of initial blood loss. Blood pressure falls and heart rates often increase or become irregular. The 'shock' element of the condition involves mental failures such as anxiety, confusion, and even fainting. Diminished circulation also affects the skin, which will look pale and feel cool and moist. Hemorrhagic shock also leads to a general state of weakness. Hemorrhagic shock will be associated with other complications, depending on its cause: for example, bleeding or chest pain.
