"Assessing trauma patient risk using non-invasive indicators"
Non-invasive indicators of a trauma patient's risk of cardiovascular collapse are needed. Exhaled alveolar air (end-tidal air) and skin surface are available non-invasively and have physiologic reasons to relate to trauma ...
"Chest skin and sublingual PCO2 during hemorrhage"
Base deficit is an indicator for degree of metablic insult/oxygen debt from hemorrhage and is moratlity risk related in trauma patients. We investigated the use of less invasively available skin and sublingual partial ...
"Ion and albumin influence on measurement of metabolic debt"
Alterations in Na+, Cl-, and albumin, if present and not accounted for, may lead one to false conclusions concerning perfusion status as indicated by base excess (BEtotal).
"Sweat may impair skin carbon dioxide (PCO2) dependent discrimination in trauma patients"
Assessing internal bleeding from trauma is difficult. Non-invasive discriminationrs between the physiologic changes of exercise (or excitement) and injury could be useful, especially at locations with limited access to ...
"Issues with hypotensive stabilization following hemorrhage"
We are investigating pharmacologic interruption of angiotensin II production (enalaprilat) combined with either 7.8% hypertonic saline dextran (HSD) or a hemoglobin based oxygen carrier (HBOC, Oxyglobin) as methods to ...
