Understanding Pitting Edema

All living cells in the human body require oxygen in order to efficiently convert glucose into energy. In order for cells to receive oxygen, there needs to be adequate blood flow throughout the body so that oxygen-rich blood can deliver oxygen to the tissues and cellular respiration can occur. When there is impedance in the bodies’ ability to perfuse blood to the tissues, shock may occur. Shock occurs when there is a circulatory failure throughout the entire body, which results in cellular damage and can lead to multiple organ failures if not treated immediately.

Blood pressure is a major determinate in the perfusion of tissues because there needs to...
