OBJECTIVE This study was designed to evaluate the effects of terlipressin versus fluid resuscitation with normal saline, hypertonic saline or hypertonic-hyperoncotic hydroxyethyl starch, on hemodynamics, metabolics, blood loss and short-term survival in hemorrhagic shock. METHOD Twenty-nine pigs were subjected to severe liver injury and treated 30 min(More)
BACKGROUND This study was designed to evaluate serum potassium level variation in a porcine model of hemorrhagic shock (HS). METHODS Eight pigs were studied in a controlled hemorrhage model of HS. Blood withdrawal began at a 50 mL/min to 70 mL/min rate, adjusted to reach a mean arterial pressure (MAP) level of 60 mm Hg in 10 minutes. When MAP reached 60(More)
UNLABELLED During orthotopic liver transplantation for fulminant hepatic failure, some patients may develop sudden deterioration of cerebral perfusion and oxygenation, mainly due to increased intracranial pressure and hypotension, which are likely responsible for postoperative neurological morbidity and mortality. In the present study, we hypothesized that(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The aim of this paper is to report a case in which the damage control resuscitation (DCR) approach was successfully used to promote hemostatic resuscitation in a polytraumatized patient with severe hemorrhagic shock. CASE REPORT Female patient, 32 years of age, with severe hemorrhagic shock due to polytrauma with hip fracture,(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES A better understanding of pathophysiologic changes associated to trauma and hemorrhagic shock can help the development of therapies capable of reducing trauma-related mortality. The objective of this study was to describe a model of non-controlled hemorrhagic shock in pigs. METHODS Animals received ketamine and midazolam as(More)
