UNLABELLED Profound hypothermic arrest ("suspended animation") is a new strategy to improve outcome following uncontrolled lethal hemorrhage (ULH). However, the impact of this approach on the immune/inflammatory response is unknown. This experiment was conducted to test the influence of profound hypothermia on markers of immune/inflammatory system. (More)
BACKGROUND Cytotoxic properties of racemic (D-,L-isomers) lactated Ringer's solution detected in vitro and in small animal experiments, have not been confirmed in large animal models. Our hypothesis was that in a clinically relevant large animal model of hemorrhage, resuscitation with racemic lactated Ringer's solution would induce cellular apoptosis, which(More)
This study examines effectiveness of a donated Laerdal Virtual I.V. simulator when compared with traditional methods of teaching intravenous (IV) cannulation to third year medical students in the Philippines. Forty novice Filipino medical students viewed an instructional video on how to start intravenous lines and were then randomly divided into two groups(More)
BACKGROUND Rapid induction of profound hypothermic arrest (suspended animation) can provide valuable time for the repair of complex injuries and improve survival. The optimal rate for re-warming from a state of profound hypothermia is unknown. This experiment was designed to test the impact of different warming rates on outcome in a swine model of lethal(More)
BACKGROUND Lethal injuries can be repaired under asanguineous hypothermic arrest (suspended animation) with excellent survival. This experiment was designed to test the impact of this strategy on neuronal and astroglial damage in a swine model of lethal hemorrhage. Furthermore, our goal was to correlate the histological changes in the brain with(More)
BACKGROUND Chromatin remodeling through histone acetylation is a key control mechanism in gene transcription. We have shown previously that fluid resuscitation in rodents is coupled with highly structured post-translational modifications of cardiac histones. The current experiment was performed to validate this concept in a clinically relevant large animal(More)
