Résumé (français)  :

Abstract (English)  :

Successful management of neonatal shock is driven by the etiology and pathophysiology of the cardiovascular compromise. In the clinical practice, however, we only have a limited ability to recognize the etiology of the condition (hypovolemia, myocardial dysfunction or abnormal vasoregulation). Therefore, management is based on administration of fluid boluses and vasoactive medications according to personal preference rather than to the underlying pathophysiology. In addition, although management strategies aimed at improving systemic blood pressure may have been associated with a decrease in mortality in critically ill neonates, there are no prospective data on the effect of these management strategies on morbidity, especially on long-term neurodevelopmental outcome. This paper briefly reviews some of the more frequently encountered clinical presentations of neonatal shock and describes the developmentally regulated cardiovascular responses to the pathophysiology-driven management strategies used in these clinical presentations in the critically ill preterm and term neonate.
