Departmental sources Background: Our previous study found a novel fluid combination with better resuscitation effects under hypotensive condition at the early stage of uncontrolled hemorrhagic shock (UHS). However, the optimal recovery concentration of hypertonic saline in this fluid combination remains unknown. This experiment aimed to explore the optimal concentration. Material/Methods: New Zealand white rabbits (n=40) were randomly divided into 5 groups, including a sham-operated group (SO), a shock non-treated group (SNT), a normal saline group (NS), and hypertonic saline groups (4.5% and 7.5%). We established an UHS model and administered various fluid combinations (dose-related sodium chloride solution+crystal-colloidal solution) to the groups followed by monitoring indexes of hemodynamic and renal function, measuring infusion volume and blood loss, and analyzing pathological morphology by hematoxylin and eosin staining. Results: The hypertonic saline groups showed more stable hemodynamic indexes, reduced blood loss, fewer required infusions, and milder decreases in renal function than those of control groups (SNT and NS groups), and exhibited fewer pathological changes in the heart, lung, kidney, and liver. All indexes in the 4.5% and 7.5% groups were better than those of the NS group, and the hemodynamic indexes in the 7.5% group were more stable than those of the 4.5% group (P<0.05), with reduced blood loss and infusion volume and a milder decrease in renal function. Conclusions: The novel fluid combination with 7.5% hypertonic saline group had a better recovery effect at the early stage of UHS before hemostasis compared to that of the 4.5% hypertonic saline group. This result may provide guidance for clinical fluid resuscitation.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
