Characteristics of ventricular function in severe hemorrhagic shock.


Although left ventricular (LV) function appears altered by severe hemorrhagic shock (HS), the mechanisms of this dysfunction have been difficult to characterize. Depression in the LV function curve could be caused by altered diastolic or systolic function. It has been difficult to assess the systolic function, but the use of the rate and load independent… (More)
