Organ blood flow and the central hemodynamic response are better preserved in female, as opposed to the male rats, after trauma-hemorrhagic shock.

Abstract

The objective of this study was to test the hypotheses that the better resistance of proestrus female than male rats to trauma-hemorrhagic shock (T/HS)-induced gut and other organ injury, and it is associated with better preservation of central hemodynamics and organ blood flow including blood flow to the intestine.
