Small-volume resuscitation restores hemorrhage-induced microcirculatory disorders in rat pancreas.

OBJECTIVES Pancreatic hypoxia/ischemia, as a consequence of shock-induced microcirculatory failure, is considered a causative factor in the initiation and/or progression of pancreatic tissue injury. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of "small volume resuscitation" with conventional isovolemic colloid and hypervolemic crystalloid resuscitation… CONTINUE READING
