Anaphylactic shock

This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

I first need to describe what Anaphylactic shock is, then describe how this will affect cardiac output and blood pressure and why. Then I would need to know the compensation mechanisms that the body will use to restore the cardiovascular system back to normal in detail.

I really don't know where to begin and any help will be greatly appreciated.
