Quote: It is thus the intravascular component of volume contraction (or loss of blood volume due to things such as hemorrhaging or dehydration), but, as it also is the most essential one, hypovolemia and volume contraction are sometimes used synonymously.

Hospital treatment would include stopping the source of the blood loss and replacing the blood.
Why KC would be looking this up, who knows???

I don't know about Lee Anthony's Accutane-related issues and how this search term might relate, but...
Hypovolemia is essentially low blood/plasma volume, which can be fatal if there's too little blood being pumped to vital organs. I understand that another term searched around the same time was "ruptured spleen". Internal bleeding (such as you'd experience with a ruptured spleen) can cause Hypovolemia, which can lead to death. For whatever this info is worth.

Here's what Cindy said about the Accutane thing.. in one of her interviews with LE, I believe:
Q Okay. You also mentioned that when Lee was
about 15, he had -- he started to have some issues?
Q That would be depression?
A Yes. He had an adverse reaction to Accutane,
the medicine for acne.
Q O k a y .
A And he went into what they call ITP, where
his platelets went from normal down to 13,000, which
was extremely dangerous. At any time my son could have
died through that time. And your normal is supposed to
be 150,000, and he went down to 13,000 within a month.
And that was abnormal.
And he had to be in the hospital and have
treatment for that and was on restriction for a yearand-
a-half where he could not drive, participate in
sports, and, you know, had to take precautions because
he could bleed out at any time. If he would have been
hit in the head, he could have died. And my son was
playing basketball and volleyball at the time that we
had noted that.
And when someone tells you you're son could
die in a car accident or anything because they could
hemorrhage out, you kind of -- and you hit that with a
15-year-old, going to be 16, getting ready to get his
license, kind of hard to take.

But perhaps this very holding back is the one suffering you could have avoided.

Did I miss it, I did not hear them ask Lee if he searched on the computer for any of those things?

An epidural hematoma is when a buildup of blood occurs between the dura mater (the tough outer membrane of the brain) and the skull. The most common cause of an epidural hematoma is TRAUMA. Problem is: Epidural hematoma's do not present themselves until hours or days later......Usually the patient will only complain of a headache and most of the time refuse medical treatment. Hypovolemia would not be a presenting sign.
Ruptured spleen can cause significant blood loss, but does not always result in immediate blood loss. In one case of mine, I had a patient (truck driver) who fell off his truck during his shift. He didn't think anything of it until hours later after completing his route to seek treatment. Well long and behold he had a ruptured spleen and required emergency surgery. So ruptured spleen would not cause immediate death.
Who really knows "who" was looking up what on the computer. Has it been determined that CA was NOT doing some of these searches? I know she is a nurse and just as a paramedic (we) must complete a certain amount of CEU's (continuing education units) every year. A lot of the time we are required to watch countless hours of videos relating to our field. Plus if IIRC correctly CA was no longer working with patients, but more in a managerial type of setting. So I see where it would be completely logical for her to look up certain search terms in regards to completing her CEU's.
I know in relation to my line of work, I used to teach classes on trauma and have made numerous Power Point presentations relating to trauma, spinal injuries, abdominal trauma, head injuries, neck injuries etc. I have Googled everything from hangings using numerous household items, gunshot wounds using different caliber guns, burns from chemicals to thermal etc....
Lord help me if anyone goes missing in my family and the FBI searches my computers........

I believe the same thing could have happened with the computer searches. However, I would believe if CA was looking up those search terms she would have come forward and said something by now.........

(edit - I see this has already been answered, sorry, as to what it is. WHY, well that's another post.)
What causes hypovolemia?
Conditions that cause blood or body fluid loss can cause hypovolemia, as can inadequate fluid intake. If persistent or severe, diarrhea and vomiting can deplete body fluids. Fluids can also be lost as a result of large burns or excessive sweating. Use of diuretics can result in fluid loss by increasing urine output. Blood loss may result from external injury or internal bleeding. Certain pregnancy complications can also cause blood loss leading to hypovolemia.
Causes of hypovolemia
A number of conditions may cause hypovolemia, many of which are serious conditions. Examples include:
•Decreased blood clotting ability
•Diarrhea or vomiting
•Excessive sweating (which can result from heat exposure)
•Extremes of age (infants and the elderly may be unable to take fluids)
•Kidney diseases resulting in increased urination
•Placenta previa (placental tissue on top of the cervix) or abruption (early detachment of the placenta)
•Use of diuretics
Serious or life-threatening causes of hypovolemia
Many conditions that cause hypovolemia are serious or life-threatening conditions that should be immediately evaluated in an emergency setting. These include:
•Ectopic pregnancy (life-threatening pregnancy growing outside the uterus)
•Internal bleeding (often from the gastrointestinal tract, although it can develop elsewhere)
•Ruptured aortic aneurysm (bulging and weakened aortic artery wall that can burst and cause severe hemorrhage) or other vascular abnormalities
•Serious injury or traumaAnd a rock feels no pain. And an island never cries.

Searching for "chloroform" 84 times in one day doesn't even make sense. It's like you have a chimpanzee at the keyboard. You'd think the person would find whatever they are looking for after a few searches.
Well yes, after 21 searches without getting what you want, of course you will need to search another 63 times.
