It is not like that, remember the stages of shock, you have to always give at least maintenance fluids.

Remember that the first change in people with shock is tachycardia, pressures below 90/60 will always be considered shock until proven otherwise..

There is no easy answer for this.. you will need to analyze the whole picture.
