In this patient discount 50 mg naltrexone with mastercard, the possibility of bleeding should be assessed in five areas: (1) external bleeding (eg discount 50 mg naltrexone amex, scalp/extremity lacerations); (2) thorax (eg purchase naltrexone 50mg with visa, hemothorax, aortic injury); (3) peritoneal cavity (eg, solid organ lacerations, large vessel injury); (4) pelvis/ retroperitoneum (eg, pelvic fracture); and (5) soft-tissue compartments (eg, long- bone fractures). Chest roentgeno- grams can identify a hemothorax and potential mediastinal bleeding. Fractures are not only associ- ated with blood loss from the bone and adjacent soft tissue, but their presence indicates significant energy transfer (often referred to as a significant mechanism of injury) and should increase the clinical suspicion for intra-abdominal and retroperitoneal bleeding. Typically, tibial or humeral fractures can be associated with 750 mL of blood loss (1. Pelvic fractures may result in even more blood loss—up to several liters can be lost into a retroperitoneal hematoma. Laboratory Evaluation Laboratory studies that aid (but are not necessary) in evaluating acute blood loss are hemoglobin, hematocrit, base deficit, and lactate levels. Hemoglobin is measured in grams of red blood cells per deciliter of blood; hematocrit is the percentage of blood volume that is red blood cells. Loss of whole blood will not decrease the red blood cell concentration or the percentage of red cells in blood. The initial minor drops in hemoglobin and hematocrit levels are the results of mechanisms that compensate for blood loss by drawing fluid into the vascular space. To see significant decreases in these values, blood loss must be replaced with crystalloid solution; therefore, most decreases in hemoglobin and hematocrit values are not seen until patients have received large volumes of crystalloid fluid for resuscitation. With the ongoing metabolic acidosis of hemorrhagic shock, an increased base deficit and lactate level will be seen. Both lactate and base deficit levels are labora- tory values that indicate systemic acidosis, not local tissue ischemia. They are global indices of tissue perfusion and normal values may mask areas of under perfusion as a consequence of normal blood flow to the remainder of the body. It is, therefore, not surprising that lactate and base deficit are poor prognostic indicators of survival in patients with shock. Although absolute values of these laboratory results are not predictors of survival in patients with shock, the baseline value and trends can be used to deter- mine the extent of tissue hypoxia and adequacy of resuscitation. Normalization of base deficit and serum lactate within 24 hours after resuscitation is a good prognostic indicator of survival. Of note, given that lactate is hepatically metabolized, it is not a reliable value in patients with liver dysfunction. Centr al Monitoring The approach to central monitoring in the trauma patient has changed dramatically. The benefit of central monitoring is to most accurately determine cardiac preload, given that preload, or end-diastolic sarcomere length, is the driving force behind the cardiac output as defined by the Starling Curve. Previously, placement of a pulmo- nary artery catheter was used to measure the pulmonary capillary occlusion (wedge) pressure. This number was used as an approximation of left atrial pressure, which in turn was an indirect measurement of left ventricular end-diastolic pressure and vol- ume. Left-ventricular end-diastolic volume is considered the best clinical estimate of preload. Management of Hemorrhagic Shock Resuscitation The most common and easily available fluid replacements are isotonic crystalloid solutions such as normal saline or lactated Ringer solution. This distri- bution has led to the guideline of 3 mL crystalloid replacement for each 1 mL of blood loss. A blood transfusion is indicated if the patient persists in shock despite the rapid infusion of 2 to 3 L of crystalloid solution, or if the patient has had such se- vere blood loss that cardiovascular collapse is imminent. When possible, typed and cross-matched blood is optimal; however, in the acute setting, this is often unfea- sible. Type-specific unmatched blood is the next best option, followed by O-negative blood in females and O-positive blood in males. Colloid solutions such as albumin and hetastarch or dextran are not superior to crystalloid replacement in the acute setting and have the potential for large fluid shifts and pulmonary or bowel wall edema. The central tenet is that patients suffering from hemorrhagic shock (exclud- ing intracranial hemorrhages) may benefit from judicious fluid administration. In permissive hypotension, the patient’s blood pressure is not resuscitated to their normal blood pressure, or to what physicians consider a normal blood pressure. Instead, the blood pressure is allowed to remain low (mean arterial pressures of 60-70 mm Hg or a systolic blood pressure of 80-90 mm Hg). Permissive hypo- tension is thought to be effective in hemorrhagic shock because it is thought that post-hemorrhage, the artificially increased blood pressure by aggressive fluid resuscitation may disrupt endogenous clot formation and promote further bleed- ing. Also, crystalloid is often administered at room temperature, which is actually colder than the body temperature and can result in hypothermia following exces- sive administration. Crystalloid can also dilute the endogenous clotting factors and erythrocyte concentration, resulting in poorer control of bleeding and also diminished oxygen carrying capacity.

Data was accumulated to a maximum of 500 platelets in each one of the 256 channels generic naltrexone 50 mg amex. The platelet count was monitored to ensure that significant aggregation did not occur order 50 mg naltrexone with visa. The fall in platelet count was not greater than 5 % in any of the samples included in these studies discount 50 mg naltrexone with mastercard. The applied current is constant and some of the current is diverted into a preamplifier each time a platelet passes through the aperture. The amplitude of the current pulse is a function of the platelet volume (Coulter Electronics handbook). All “platelet sizing” experiments were carried out within 2 h of blood collection (Jagroop et al. The platelets adhering to the filter, were post-fixed with osmium tetroxide for 1 h and then gently washed in distilled water. The stubs were examined and photographed using a Phillips 501 scanning electron microscope (Jagroop et al. The specimens were then further washed using distilled water and dehydrated using graded alcohol from 30% to 100%. The cells were left 102 0 in 50% alcohol/50% Lemix (Taab) epoxy-resin mixture overnight to infiltrate at 70 C. Ultra- thin (1µm) sections were cut using a diamond knife (Diatome) on a Reichert-Jung ultra-cut microtome and collected on 3. The ultra-thin sections were viewed and photographed using a Phillips 201 transmission electron microscope (Jagroop et al. The α-granules are clearly separated from other membranes and from the plasmalemma. The dense tubular system is ubiquitously distributed in the platelet (see figure 1. The plasmalemma shows a non-random distribution of phospholipids that depend on the functional state of platelets (Zwaal and Hemker, 1982). Within the resting platelet there is a lose network of long acting filaments (Mani et al. Ultra-thin sections of stimulus-induced, activated platelets revealed shape change and formation of spherical or oblong cells with pseudopodia. These spike-like surface extensions contained microtubules, suggesting a possible role for the tubular elements in development of the spiky extensions. Indeed it has previously been shown the apparent ‘increase’ in 104 platelet size occurs concomitantly with the pseudopodia extensions (Jagroop et al. The marginal bundle of microtubules lying under the plasmalemma supports the shape of the resting platelet and is required for platelet resistance to deformation. Activated platelets undergo a rearrangement of their microtubules and this results in a change of cell deformability (White et al. The microtubules which are associated with the outer rim of the constricting contractile gel are translocated centripetally from their sub-membranous site to the centre of the cell (Escolar et al. This contractile gel comprises the mass of cell organelles and the constriction of the gel results in organelle centralisation. An actin protein associated with regions of the plasmalemma devoid of actin filaments reversibly increases after platelet activation (Hartwig et al. Activating agents effect the formation of filaments from actin and myosin molecules. Morphometric measurements and findings of comparative studies on “normal” and “giant” platelets (reviewed in Frojmowic & Milton, 1982) or normal “grey” platelets (Morgenstern et al. These were incubated at 37 C, for a minimum of 15 min, on a whole blood Chronolog aggregometer (model 540). Agonists’ concentrations and volumes were added and stirred using a Teflon-coated magnet spinning at 1,000 rpm (as described in the relevant sections in this thesis). The time between removing the blood from the aggregometer and aspiration into the blood counter was kept to a minimum of <10 sec. The timing of samples and controls are also shown in the relevant C sections of this thesis. Platelet aggregation was calculated on the basis of the number of ‘free’ platelets remaining after agonists was added (i. Blood was kept at 37 C throughout aggregation experiments since platelet function may be influenced by cooling (Mikhailidis, et al. It has been implicated in the regulation of neuroendocrine function, body temperature and blood pressure. After incubation, the contents of the wells were aspirated and the wells were washed to remove excess tracer.
