Shock represents a condition of inadequate tissue perfusion due to circulatory insufficiency. Hemorrhage is the most common cause of shock in injured patients. Traumatic hemorrhagic shock presents a life-threatening condition due to the development of multifunctional organ dysfunction syndrome, which can be diagnosed due to symptomatology and changes in vital parameters. This study aims to analyse the epidemiological characteristics of traumatic - hemorrhagic shock and to demonstrate the efficacy of therapy in hemodynamic stabilization in patients with shock during the first 12 hours of intensive treatment at University Clinical Center of Kosovo.
