Abstract:

Previously we reported that intravenous IV hydroxocobalamin is as effective as IV Hextend in improving systolic blood pressure SBP in a controlled hemorrhagic shock model. We aimed to compare IV hydroxocobalamin HOC to Hextend using an uncontrolled hemorrhage model. Non-compressible wounds are difficult to treat. An ideal resuscitative fluid would be a small volume, portable drug that improves blood pressure and survival.
