Stage 2: the very sneaky Pre-Shock Slide (a new paradigm)

The Pre-Shock Slide

The disease is now systemic.
Parameters drift, slip and slide... and start hugging the upper or lower limit of their normal range. . ..., but there is no shock yet!
The absence of shock is due to the fact that compensatory mechanisms are at play.
Well...well... well...if left untreated, our patient is now destined to slide into stage 3.
In fact, illness diagnosis and treatment should be fast and aggressive... right now...!.

( This pre-shock slide is, sadly, completely missed by many physicians --- one possible reason is that parameters we choose here are generally not stored in a graphic way but instead as numbers in various patient data collection)
