OBJECTIVE To examine whether induced hypothermia could prolong short-term survival after volume-controlled hemorrhagic shock (HS). MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifteen pigs with systemic heparin underwent blood withdrawal of 30 ml/kg over 15 min under spontaneous breathing with halothane anesthesia. The pigs were divided into three groups of five pigs each: Group 1, hemorrhage plus hypothermia with extracorporeal shunt circulation (ECSC); Group 2, hemorrhage plus normothermia with ECSC; and Group 3… CONTINUE READING
