BACKGROUND We hypothesized that hemorrhagic shock followed by the abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) resulted in bacterial translocation (BT) from the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. METHODS Nineteen Yorkshire swine (20-30 kg) were divided into two groups. In the experimental group, group 1 (n = 10), animals were hemorrhaged to a mean arterial pressure (MAP) of 25-30 mm Hg for a period of 30 minutes and resuscitated to baseline MAP. Subsequently, intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) was increased to… CONTINUE READING
