Cardiac outputVenous constriction Venous returnAdequate blood volume, aneffective cardiac pump, and aneffective vasculature arenecessary to maintain blood pressure and tissue perfusion.When one of the threecomponents of this system begins to fail, the body is able tocompensate to increased work by the other two. Whencompensatory mechanism canno longer compensate for thefailed system, body tissues areinadequate perfused and shock occurs. Without promptintervention, shock progresses,resulting in organ dysfunction,organ failure, and death.
