Abstract:

Non-compressible torso hemorrhage remains the leading cause of preventable death on the battlefield and a leading cause of death in civilian centers. The purpose of this project is to provide basic morphometric understanding of aortic and vena caval anatomy as it related to the rest of the body with the goal of enabling the use of various occlusion catheters that can control bleeding in non-compressible torso injuries in the field.
