Systemic shock is a leading cause of ICU-related admissions and death in the United States. Medical management of these patients is improving, as is the use of physical therapy to combat the effects of critical illness. However, further understanding of the consequences of oxygen deprivation is needed to ensure safe and effective care and optimal medical and functional patient outcomes. Through lecture and patient cases, the speaker will review the causes and pathophysiology of shock; changes in lab values and vital signs; the relationship between oxygen consumption, delivery, and exercise; and the role of and considerations for the physical therapist in the ICU.

Learning Objectives:

1. Correctly describe various causes of systemic shock.
2. Competently describe the role of oxygen delivery and consumption.
3. Competently discuss various changes in lab values and vitals.
4. Appropriately discuss possible positive and negative outcomes of therapy intervention for patients in shock.
