Abstract:

Our previous Air Force-funded research demonstrated that exposure of rats to 6 hour (hr) of hypobaria (approx. 8000 ft altitude equivalent) at up to 72 hr after mild to moderate traumatic brain injury (TBI) worsens neurologic and neuropathologic outcomes compared to those in rats that do not experience hypobaria. Our more recent objective was to determine whether similar effects of hypobaria are present in animal models of polytrauma consisting of impact TBI in combination with mild hemorrhagic shock.
