    Ladies and gentlemen, we’ll take a look at Critical Care in Pulmonology. I do need you to pay attention to this lecture series. It will integrate many of the systems that we have discussed and put it into a table format in which, for example, if your patient comes in with lack of proper oxygenation of his or her tissues, well, what kind of signs and symptoms are you going to be looking for? We begin our discussion by looking at this table and on the first column, we have our ‘Shocks’ that we will walk through and then everything to the right of this that you see in the table, are going to be signs and symptoms and also the measurements and tests that are going to be relevant for the type of shock that the patient is unfortunately experiencing. Welcome to Critical Care. The first type of shock, now, in general, when you think about shock, it’s a fact that the tissue is not being properly oxygenated for whatever reason. And we will go through many types of shocks, but ultimately please understand whatever that the pathogenesis was, the tissue was what was suffering the consequences. The first instance, well, we have Hypovolemic. What does that mean? Well earlier, when we had discussed Nephrology and we were talking about two major wheels of control or cycles of control. One was dealing with control of osmolarity, the other one was dealing with the wheel or cycle of volume. Do you remember that? If not, then it will be a good time for you to take a look at those two cycles where we were monitoring osmolarity and if it’s physiologically monitoring, then it is ADH, as you know, that would be measuring osmolarity. Are you clear? Whereas if it...
