Abstract:Background: Life-threatening decreases in blood pressure often are associated with a state of shock. The present study was conducted to assess cases of hemorrhagic shock in males and females. Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted on 118 patients of both genders. In all patients mode of injury was recorded. An estimated blood loss > 40% of blood volume and a SB P< 90 mmHg was considered. Results: Out of 118 patients, males were 58 and females were 60. Common cause of shock was road traffic accident seen in 62, fall in 34 and assault in 22. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). The mean SBP in males was 124.8 mm Hg and in females was 110.6 mm Hg. Pulse in males was 108.2beats/min and in females was 100.6. 54 males and 51 females survived. The difference was non- significant (P> 0.05). Conclusion: Authors found that females had more number of cases. The main cause was road side accident.
