Small-volume resuscitation with HBOC-201: effects on cardiovascular parameters and brain tissue oxygen tension in an out-of-hospital model of hemorrhage in swine.
This experimental observational study reports that, in anesthetized pigs undergoing hemorrhage, small volume resuscitation (6 mL/kg) of a bovine hemoglobin based oxygen carrier can restore mean arterial pressure and cardiac output while improving brain oxygen tension. – Philippe Van der Linden This is a second article on the effect of HBOC-201 for the acute treatment […]
This experimental study highlights the potential beneficial therapeutic effect of a hemoglobin-based oxygen carrier (HBOC) used as a resuscitation fluid during severe traumatic shock. In contrast to colloid (high molecular weight hydroxyethyl starch) based resuscitation, a similar volume of HBOC from bovine origin prevented exsanguination cardiac arrest, allowing for significantly higher long term (96 hr) […]
Comparison of the effects of a 50% exchange-transfusion with albumin, hetastarch, and modified hemoglobin solutions.
This preliminary (considering phase III studies have been completed or are underway) study in rats adds little to what has already been published on this issue in more elaborate animal models. While interesting, the study falls short of answering the true question: do hemoglobin solutions such as o-raffinose-crosslinked hemoglobin improve outcome in humans? – J.-F. […]
Hypotensive resuscitation using a polymerized bovine hemoglobin-based oxygen-carrying solution (HBOC-201) leads to reversal of anaerobic metabolism.
Interesting article evaluating the place of a hemoglobin-based oxygen-carrying solution in the resuscitation of severe hemorrhagic shock. – P. Van der Linden.
