hemorraghe (an excessive loss of whole blood). The amount of blood loss that results in shock depends on
the efficiency of a person’s compensatory mechanism and the rapidity of blood loss. Signs and symptoms of

capability to handle this condition, in every place/ward. The nurses have to give appropriate interventions or
