Correction of hemorrhagic shock-induced liver hypoxia with whole blood, Ringer's solution or with hetastarch.


Liver oxygenation was studied with hemorrhagic hypotension and corrected using whole blood, a synthetic colloid (hydroxyethyl starch or hetastarch, HES; mol. wt. 120,000), or a crystalloid solution. Measurements were performed directly by recording pig liver tissue oxygen tension with an implanted silicone elastomer (Silastic) tube, and indirectly by… (More)
