DISTRIBUTIVE SHOCK (I.E. SEPTIC OR ANAPHYLAXIS) ARE THE ONLY SHOCKS WITH INCREASED CARDIAC OUTPUT!

FA2020 p310

This man presents with hypothermia (septic shock can present with hyper or hypothermia), tachycardia, and low blood pressure with increased cardiac output, characteristic of septic shock. Further distributive shock is associated with severe decrease in systemic vascular resistance while other forms of shock have increased systemic vascular resistance.
