Abstract

An animal polytrauma model was developed, including trunk and extremity injuries combined with hemorrhagic shock and a prolonged post-traumatic phase. This could be useful for the assessment of different therapeutic approaches during intensive care therapy. A standardized polytrauma including lung contusion, liver laceration and lower leg fracture was applied in 25 pigs. They underwent controlled haemorrhage either with a blood volume loss of 45 % and a median arterial pressure (MAP) <30 mmHg/90 min (group L, n = 15) or a 50 % blood loss of and an MAP <25 mmHg/120 min (group H, n = 10). Five non-traumatized pigs served as a control (group C). Subsequently, intensive care treatment was given for an observational period of 48 h. Both trauma groups showed signs of shock and organ injury (heart rate, MAP and lactate). The frequency of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and lung injury was directly related to the severity of the haemorrhagic shock (CPR-group L: 4 of 15 pigs, group H: 4 of 10 pigs; Respiratory failure-group L: 3 of 13, group H: 3 of 9. There was no difference in mortality between trauma groups. The present data suggest that our model reflects the mortality and organ failure of polytrauma in humans during shock and the intensive care period. This suggests that the experimental protocol could be useful for the assessment of therapeutic approaches during the post-traumatic period.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 02 February 2016.
All research outputs
#6,092,696
of 7,084,078 outputs
Outputs from European Journal of Medical Research
#144
of 193 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#264,297
of 320,256 outputs
Outputs of similar age from European Journal of Medical Research
#6
of 9 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 7,084,078 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 193 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.4. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 320,256 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 9 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 3 of them.
