Abstract

Resuscitation during ongoing hemorrhagic shock attempts to restore physiologic balance by achieving rapid surgical control of hemorrhage, providing fluid and blood products and titrating to laboratory and clinical parameters. Phases of resuscitation occur in the pre-hospital environment, emergency room, operating room, and intensive care unit (ICU) where multiple health care providers and physicians influence patient outcome by their attentiveness and diligence to this careful art.
