Eighty percent of CBF occurs during diastole. 4. Mechanistically results in diastolic augmentation and systolic unloading (afterload reduction). CHAPTER 4 HOW TO THINK ABOUT SHOCK 33 15. What is systolic unloading? Balloon deflation is an active (not a passive) process. Helium abruptly is sucked out of the balloon, leaving a 40-ml empty space in the aorta. The left ventricle can eject the first 40 ml of its stroke volume into this empty space at dramatically reduced workload. An intraaortic balloon increases CBF during diastole, while decreasing cardiac oxygen consumption just presystole.

Not just decreased peripheral perfusion. & Not just limited systemic oxygen delivery. Ultimately, shock is decreased tissue respiration. Shock is suboptimal consumption of oxygen and excretion of carbon dioxide (CO2) at the cellular level. 2. Is shock related to cardiac output? Yes. A healthy medical student can redistribute blood flow preferentially to vital organs. ’’ From this history you have no idea what happened to him, but you do know that he is still perfusing his brain. 3. Is organ perfusion democratic?

1. Reduce lung edema (typically with a diuretic). 2. Reduce oxygen toxicity (inspired oxygen concentration <60% is safe). 3. Limit lung barotrauma (avoid peak inspiratory pressure in >40 cm H2O). 4. Promote matching of V and Q; frequently positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) is useful. 5. Maintain systemic oxygen delivery (arterial oxygen content  cardiac output [CO]). 17. What governs the distribution of lung perfusion? It is governed mostly by gravity. The dependent portions of the lung always are better perfused.
