Zusammenfassung

Purpose of the study: For the past twenty years, prehospital treatment of hypotensive trauma patients suffering of uncontrolled hemorrhagic shock included crystalloid and colloid solutions in order to maintain adequate tissue perfusion, and tissue oxygen delivery. Currently, there is an ongoing controversial discussion about resuscitation strategies in uncontrolled hemorrhagic shock, such as immediate vs. delayed fluid resuscitation. Therefore, we sought to determine the effects of vasopressin and delaying fluid resuscitation on hemodynamic variables and long-term survival in a penetrating liver trauma model in pigs.
