Pathophysiology of septic shock: Bacterial components (Endotoxin, peptidoglycan etc) cause an inflammatory reaction. Proinflammatory cytokines (TNFalpha, IL-1 etc) dump into the bloodstream in an effort to fight off those invaders. A massive inflammatory state ensues, not the least of which creates a “leakiness” of blood vessels ( in part due to nitric oxide release), making it difficult to maintain a proper pressure. With a low intravascular volume, the heart tries to compensate by pumping faster. If the septic (distributive) shock is significant, the heart rate wont create enough pressure in the vessels to perfuse the end organs and tissues. When tissue ischemia sets in, the dying cells release lactate (since they do not have oxygen and shunt over to alternative anaerobic respiration). Rising levels of lactate act as a surrogate marker of tissue damage and drop the pH of the blood down to dangerously acidic levels. To treat: dump in fluids, pan culture, start broad spectrum abx early, trend lactates, hemodynamic monitoring. If things go south, start pressors. #sepsis #survivingsepsis #septicshock
