Shock is most commonly due to hypotension, which is a systolic blood pressure less than 90 mm Hg, or a mean arterial pressure less than 65 mm Hg, that leads to inadequate tissue perfusion and injury to various organ systems, like the brain, heart, kidneys, and liver.
If left untreated, shock can cause irreversible multi-organ failure and death.
