Haemoglobin solution as an oxygen-carrying resuscitation fluid in haemorrhagic shock
A SOLUTION of pyridoxalated haemoglobin has been prepared and tested in an animal shock model by comparing its efficiency in resuscitating an animal from hypovolaemic shock with dextran. It is as efficient as dextran in restoring blood pressure, and makes more oxygen available to the tissues. Great care must be exercised in the preparation of the haemoglobin solution.
