Excessive loss of blood
Hypovolemic shock is caused by blood loss, and there is a low volume of blood in the system.
A loss of a large volume of blood will cause hypovolemic shock.
to numb pain or loss of blood
Losing around 20% of your blood volume will put you into shock. NB: When your blood pressure falls, your body is unable to compensate through the normal mechanisms of control (such as the renin-angiotensin system in the kidneys, or constricting blood vessels) for the the loss of blood and the patient is in serious shock. If the blood loss is acute, the BP may rise initially due to the constriction of blood vessels etc.
Shock is usually caused by trauma, blood loss, dehydration or massive infection
only that form of shock caused by large scale loss of blood.

Technically blood loss is Hypovolemia, which is a state of decreased blood volume, or more specifically blood plasma. Therefore blood loss is classified as Hypovolemic Shock, which, although independently referred to on its own, can also fall into the class of Distributive Shock. This is caused by any form of hypoxia, which more often then not, is a relative form of Hypovolemia, or blood loss. So essentially- Hypovolemic Shock=Distributive Shock as it = a relative form of Hypovolemia So if you are trying to be specific to an the issue, use HS, but if you want a category that also pertains to other similar shock types, use DS.
