Management of Distributive shock

Management is often based on the cause of the shock or the type of shock.

If for fluid resuscitation, check the glusoce level prior.

Septic shock: prompt antibiotics, source control – Inotropic support: start when BP is refractory to fluid. Usually noradrenaline for septic shock – Anaphylaxis: SC/ IV adrenaline
