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.
