The systemic responses to trauma can be divided into cardiovascular, immunological, and metabolic. The cardiovascular responses are seen immediately after a traumatic insult. The pattern of response depends on whether the insult is mainly haemorrhagic, tissue damage, or a combination of the two. The response may be quite different for penetrating vascular trauma, compared with a crush injury to a limb. The immunological, or inflammatory, consequences of trauma usually become apparent several…

The Pathophysiology of Severe Trauma

The metabolic, endocrine, vascular and inflammatory changes that occur in response to severe trauma, as well as the interactions between these systems will be described.

Open Access REVIEW

The goal of the current review is to correlate the metabolic changes with the three phenotypes -ischemia-reperfusion, leukocytic and angiogenic- that the patients express during the evolution of the systemic inflammatory response.

The Acute Inflammatory Response in Trauma / Hemorrhage and Traumatic Brain Injury: Current State and Emerging Prospects

Novel approaches, including those from the field of systems biology, may yield therapeutic breakthroughs in T/HS and TBI in the near future.

A Review of metabolic staging in severely injured patients

The goal of the current review is to correlate the metabolic changes with the three phenotypes -ischemia-reperfusion, leukocytic and angiogenic- that the patients express during the evolution of the systemic inflammatory response.

Cardiac Changes in Hospitalized Patients of Trauma

The findings in the study support the concept of human stress cardiomyopathy and demonstrate the potential significance of stress in precipitating death.

An Adequately Robust Early TNF-α Response Is a Hallmark of Survival Following Trauma/Hemorrhage

Contrary to the current dogma, survival in the setting of severe, acute T/HS appears to be associated with an immediate increase in serum TNF-α, which is currently unclear if this response was the cause of this protection, a marker of survival, or both.

DETECTION OF EARLY MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION DURING POSTMORTEM BY FLUORESCENT MICROSCOPIC EVALUATION

Hospitalized cases of traumatic injuries and thermal burns brought for medico-legal autopsy were examined to find out the incidence, its significance and the extent of the myocardial lesions caused due to stress & strain following trauma.

Oxygen Mitigates the Inflammatory Response in a Model of Hemorrhage and Zymosan-Induced Inflammation

Oxygen mitigates the inflammatory response and exerts a beneficial effect on survival in a double-hit model of hemorrhage and zymosan-induced inflammation, and this model allowed exploration of theinflammatory response over time in the surviving mice.

Hemodynamic changes and gut barrier function in sequential hemorrhagic and endotoxic shock.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the two-hit theory by observing the hemodynamic and bacteriologic response to a second stress in a subacute pig model of hemorrhagic and endotoxic shock.

Multiple organ failure after trauma

A patient who has been severely injured and has survived initial resuscitation may develop the features of the systemic inflammatory response syndrome and may then deteriorate with features of multiple organ failure, which is often fatal.

Posttraumatic inflammatory response, secondary operations, and late multiple organ failure.

It is concluded that secondary operations may act as a second insult and may precipitate late multiple organ dysfunction syndrome if they are performed in patients with multiple trauma while they still have an increased level of posttraumatic inflammation.

Manipulating the metabolic response to injury.

The focus of this chapter muscle wasting or catabolism is chosen and the reader is referred to other reviews on insulin resistance and metabolic rate.

An effect of trauma on human cardiovascular control: baroreflex suppression.

It is shown that moderate injury results in a profound and prolonged suppression of baroreflex function and further advances in the resuscitation and critical care of the injured may need to take account of such derangements of cardiovascular physiology.

Bacterial translocation in trauma patients.

The data suggest that bacterial translocation to the MLNs is not a common occurrence in acutely injured trauma patients, and the classical progression of bacteria from the gut to the bloodstream via theMLNs may require time and gut mucosal injury.

Serum tumor necrosis factor-alpha profile in trauma patients.

Tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) has been implicated in several late consequences of trauma such as sepsis, multiple organ failure, and ischemia-reperfusion injury. However, no data are

Temporal patterns of hemodynamics, oxygen transport, cytokine activity, and complement activity in the development of adult respiratory distress syndrome after severe injury.

It is concluded that none of the mediators measured reached their peaks before the onset of ARDS and none were found to be predictive of posttraumatic ARDS, however, these and other mediators may augment or intensify the development of AR DS.
