Answer:

The two types of hypovolemic shock are hemorrhagic and non-hemorrhagic shock. Hemorrhagic shock happens when someone is injured and looses too much blood. the treatment is to stop any further blood loss and to administer blood products to replace volume and red blood cells. Non-hemorrhagic shock occurs when someone has lost fluid volume by vomiting/ diarrhea or sweating. The treatment is volume replacement via intravenous fluid administration like normal saline.

Answer:

Beginning in the right atrium, the blood will be pumped into the right ventricle, where it will them be pumped into pulmonary circulation via the pulmonary arteries to the lungs where oxygen will be absorbed and carbon dioxide will be expelled. Then the blood will return to the heart via the pulmonary veins to the left atrium, where the blood is then pumped to the left ventricle. The blood is then pumped into systemic circulation via the arteries, arterioles, and capillaries where the oxygen will then be released to the cells and carbon dioxide is released back into the blood as it travels back to the right atrium via the venoules, veins, and superior and inferior vena cava.
