Abstract

Different causes may carry to the shock. The shock credibly has a pathological substrate, that is a damage of the microvessels, particularly capillaries and venules, vasa vasorum included; the sufference of the microvessels concerns mainly the endothelial and basal membrane. Pathogenetically the basic mechanism of the shock is the capillary damage by hypoxia. Hypoxia, in order to establish a capillary damage, must be calibrated in intensity and duration; differently hypoxia, if too important and acute, provokes death following an acute brain damage; if instead too slight, hypoxia does not damage sufficiently the microvessels.
