Causes of shock
(1) A reduction in the amount of blood circulating around the body.
It can be caused by a person experiencing severe bleeding, either internally or externally. Serious trauma that includes major or multiple fractures is another common reason for life-threatening shock. Other occurrences resulting in shock include extreme or prolonged vomiting, diarrhoea, extreme sweating and dehydration. Burns and scalds can also lead to shock.
