Shock is a life-threatening condition that occurs when the body is not getting enough blood flow. Lack of blood flow means the cells and organs do not get enough oxygen and nutrients to function properly. Many organs can be damaged as a result. Shock requires immediate treatment and can get worse very rapidly.

The main types of shock include:

1. Cardiogenic shock (due to heart problems)
2. Hypovolemic shock (caused by too little blood volume)
3. Anaphylactic shock (caused by allergic reaction)
4. Septic shock (due to infections)
5. Neurogenic shock (caused by damage to the nervous system)
