makinallkindzofgainz  This is not an ambiguous question. It makes perfect sense. +5  
khaleb  In early shock you have increased SVR due to vasoconstriction. This would cause increased flow to the kidney. I could be wrong but I think what makes that answer incorrect is NOT that RAAS hasn't been activated yet. It is what is causing vasoconstriction via Angiotensin II. What is possibly wrong about that answer is that it says via sympathetic stimulation. I do think it is a little vague between those two answers though. Because you can get sympathetic activation of the RAAS system causing vasoconstriction and blood shunted to vital organs such as the kidneys. Bottom line is you can't argue with weak pulse during hypovolemic shock.... so an obvious right answer. You could make a case for the increased blood flow to the kidney though. +2  
zqatan  @makinallkindzofgainz no need to dismiss the question... so pretentious +
