Abstract

You have just finished your second damage control laparotomy of the day, and are nervously watching the flurry of ICU nurses around this newly arrived patient. As they connect the arterial line to the monitor you notice that the blood pressure is 80 mmHg and he’s still pretty tachycardic. You order another round of blood products and some labs, but as you are writing the rest of the orders your pager alerts you to the next round of incoming wounded soldiers.
