The effect of various resuscitative regimens on hemorrhagic shock in puppies

Journal of Pediatric Surgery

Since shock secondary to hemorrhage is not infrequently encountered in the pediatric patient, a puppy model was devised to help measure and monitor cardiovascular and metabolic changes that occur before and after resuscitation from hypovolemic shock (mean arterial pressure of 50 mm Hg for 1 hr). Three resuscitation protocols were compared: whole blood (replacement:shed) 1:1, 5% albumin in Ringer's lactate 1:1; and Ringer's lactate 3:1. All dogs survived the experiment and responded similarly during the shock period. Thermal dilution cardiac output rose in all groups after resuscitation; however, in the Ringer's lactate and 5% albumin groups, cardiac output was statistically greater than that observed in the blood group. In all groups, pH and blood pressure approached but did not return completely to baseline levels after resuscitation. In addition, early resuscitation demonstrated a further decrease pH ("hidden acidosis") before it began to return toward normal as resuscitation progressed. This study suggests that the infusion of large volumes of Ringer's lactate or 5% albumin in Ringer's lactate are equally efficacious in the treatment of hemorrhage. However, 5% albumin seems to be preferable because it allows infusion of a sm...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.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

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

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Rh Isoimmunization

Rh isoimmunization is a potentially preventable condition that occasionally is associated with significant perinatal morbidity or mortality. Discover the latest research on Rh Isoimmunization here.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
