The majority of potentially preventable deaths after trauma are related to hemorrhage and occur early after injury, with the largest number of deaths occurring before hospital arrival. Approximately one-fourth of trauma deaths may be potentially preventable through early medical and surgical interventions. Interventions dedicated to bleeding control and hemostatic resuscitation have demonstrated merit in decreasing hemorrhagic injury mortality. Advancing these novel strategies to the casualty in the prehospital phase of care, particularly in tactical or austere environments, may prove beneficial for hemorrhage mitigation to temporize the window of survival to definitive care. Future studies of resuscitation and survival after traumatic injury must include analysis of prehospital deaths to fully understand the outcomes of early interventions.

To evaluate the possible association of vasopressor use with mortality in traumatic hemorrhagic shock patients.
To observe the difference between hematocrit (Hct) and albumin (Alb) levels (Hct-Alb) in hemorrhagic shock and septic shock, and to provide a quick and simple method for differentiating hemorrhagic sh...
Trauma remains a leading cause of morbidity and mortality among all age groups in the United States. Hemorrhagic shock and traumatic brain injury (TBI) are major causes of preventable death in trauma....
The use of partial resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (pREBOA) in combined hemorrhagic shock (HS) and traumatic brain injury (TBI) has not been well studied. We hypothesized tha...
Despite advances in life expectancy, low socioeconomic status is associated with a shorter lifespan. This study was conducted to investigate socioeconomic differences in mortality by comparing prevent...
Annually in the United States, approximately 30 million people require treatment for traumatic injuries in emergency departments. Two million of these patients require hospitalization, wi...
This study is designed to assess the survival benefit of administering PolyHeme to severely injured trauma patients in hemorrhagic shock beginning in the prehospital setting, where blood ...
Hemorrhagic shock is a pathologic state in which intravascular volume and oxygen delivery are impaired. During circulatory failure associated with hypovolemia and low cardiac output, redis...
The purpose of the present trial is therefore to assess effects of arginine vasopressin vs. saline placebo on hospital admission rate (primary end point), as well as hemodynamic variables,...
Hemorrhagic shock is typically identified by the degree of hypotension that develops as a result of blood loss and remains a leading cause of death on the battlefield as well as worldwide....
Shock produced as a result of trauma.
A distinct and virulent form of DENGUE characterized by thrombocytopenia and hemoconcentration (grades I and II) and distinguished by a positive tourniquet test. When accompanied by circulatory failure and shock (grades III and IV), it is called dengue shock syndrome. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
Rapid and extreme blood loss leading to HEMORRHAGIC SHOCK.
Acute hemorrhage or excessive fluid loss resulting in HYPOVOLEMIA.
A group of viral diseases of diverse etiology but having many similar clinical characteristics; increased capillary permeability, leukopenia, and thrombocytopenia are common to all. Hemorrhagic fevers are characterized by sudden onset, fever, headache, generalized myalgia, backache, conjunctivitis, and severe prostration, followed by various hemorrhagic symptoms. Hemorrhagic fever with kidney involvement is HEMORRHAGIC FEVER WITH RENAL SYNDROME.
