Severe hemorrhage due to trauma is a major cause of death throughout the world. It has often been observed that some victims are able to withstand hemorrhage better than others. For decades investigators have attempted to identify physiological mechanisms that distinguish survivors from nonsurvivors for the purpose of providing more informed therapies. As(More)
We have previously shown interstrain variation (indicating a genetic basis), and intrastrain variation in survival time after hemorrhage (STaH) among inbred rat strains. To assist in understanding physiological mechanisms associated with STaH, we analyzed various arterial blood measures (ABM; pH, Paco2, oxygen content, sodium, potassium, glucose,(More)
