How is hypovolemic shock treated

How is hypovolemic shock treated? 

Treat hypovolemia with volume. Initial therapy is usually with crystalloids. Acceptable crystalloids are lactated Ringer’s solution and normal saline. Give boluses of 20 mL of fluid per kilogram of body weight, each given over 5 to 10 minutes. Initial volume resuscitation can require 40 to 60 mL/kg or more before considering other therapy.
