Shocks

shock, septic

shock due to circulatory insufficiency caused most commonly by gram-negative bacteraemia. It is less often the result of the persistent presence of other micro-organisms in the blood (fungaemia, viraemia); in rare instances, it is caused by gram-positive organisms, but with different symptomatology.
