Treatment for obstructive shock

Treatment for obstructive shock

How is obstructive shock treated? After giving you IV fluids and checking your blood pressure and oxygen level, your healthcare provider will need to treat the cause of your obstructive shock. Possible obstructive shock treatments include: Removing an embolism with surgery or a catheter. Replacing a severely narrowed aortic valve. Reducing heart muscle wall thickness, either with surgery or catheter-based alcohol ablation. Dissolving a blood clot. Draining or relieving a pericardial tamponade or tension pneumothorax. Adjusting your ventilation if needed. Changing your body position for vena cava compression syndrome. Decompressing high lung pressures with a needle or tube
