ShockShock is acute failure of the circulation, which can occur when there is extreme pain; severe, sudden illness (such as heart attack); or excessive loss of blood or fluid after, for example, major injury, burns, vomiting, diarrhoea or severe dehydration.
Shock is a serious, life-threatening condition. It usually develops progressively, so it is important to watch carefully for any symptoms or signs, particularly deterioration in a casualty's condition after an accident or sudden illness.
