The cardiocirculatory and metabolic effects of endotoxin challenge after canine resuscitated hemorrhagic shock

The Journal of Trauma

Although adequate volume resuscitation has decreased mortality from hemorrhagic shock, recovery in many patients is complicated by sepsis. To determine whether a subject debilitated by hemorrhagic shock would exhibit greater cardiocirculatory dysfunction when challenged with sepsis, ten dogs (Group I) were hemorrhaged to a mean arterial blood pressure of 30 mm Hg. After 2 hours of hypotension, shed blood and lactated Ringer's solution (50 ml/kg) were given, and the dogs were observed for 3 to 6 days. Ten dogs were sham hemorrhage and served as controls (Group II). On the experimental day, all cardiovascular and hemodynamic parameters were measured in both groups of animals before endotoxin challenge. There was no significant difference in cardiac output, stroke volume, stroke work, +dP/dt max, myocardial blood flow, myocardial oxygen metabolism, or acid-base balance in the two groups. Compared to sham-hemorrhaged dogs, resuscitated shock dogs had a significantly lower mean arterial blood pressure (127 +/- 7 vs. 110 +/- 6 mm Hg; p less than 0.05), and heart rate was significantly higher (86 +/- 6 vs. 109 +/- 7 beats/minute; p less than 0.05). Furthermore, maximal rate of left ventricular pressure fall (-dP/dT max) was significan...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease by recent genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research.
