What happens when you go into shock?

: "what happens when you go into shock"

Why: John Locke had a compound fracture in his leg and his shin bone was sticking out.

Answer: Blood pressure drops so body parts could not get enough blood flow. Shock requires immediate medical attention lest organs become damaged. Symptoms include:
* Anxiety or agitation
* Confusion
* Pale, cool, clammy skin
* Low or no urine output
* Bluish lips and fingernails
* Dizziness, light-headedness, or faintness
* Profuse sweating, moist skin
* Rapid but weak pulse
* Shallow breathing
* Chest pain
* Unconsciousness
