Previous investigations of a treated model of hemorrhagic shock in the rat indicated the frequent occurrence of bacteremia that appeared to derive from the gut. This paper determines the incidence of bacteremia and endotoxemia during the acute shock period and compares this with similar observations in humans in varying degrees of shock. Studies in 26 rats indicated that bacteremia and endotoxemia was present in 50% and 87%, respectively, by the end of 2 hours at a mean arterial pressure of 30… CONTINUE READING
