However the current picture is based on small studies, with little human experimental mechanistic investigation [ 9 ]. The degree to which it mirrors the cardiac dysfunction seen in sepsis is unknown [ 10 ]. For now, treatment of the failing heart is to make it work harder, and that of vascular failure is to give clear fluids.
Neither is beneficial nor do they directly treat the problem, and currently there are no good alternatives. In the future, early administration of cardiac and vascular protective agents may be possible [ 10 , 11 , 12 ], or direct cardiac support through extracorporeal membrane oxygenation [ 13 ]. There may also be opportunities to combine cardiac support and ischaemic protection, through technologies such as selective aortic arch perfusion or emergency preservation resuscitation with deep hypothermia [ 14 ].
All would need to be delivered before significant myocardial loss has occurred, and therefore hyperacute identification and stratification of these patients will be vital. The second group is later deaths associated with a prolonged indolent form of multiple organ failure, immunosuppression and multiple episodes of sepsis, referred to as persistent inflammation, immunosuppression and catabolism syndrome PIICS [ 15 ]. These patients consume large amounts of critical care and hospital resources before ultimately succumbing.
PIICS may be a contemporary form of multiple organ dysfunction syndrome that occurs following an excessive or dysfunctional immune response to trauma. Human experimental research is needed to better understand the hyperacute immune response to damage before early stratification, identification of potential targets, and therapeutic modulation are possible.
Coagulation abnormalities in different patient populations
In the evolution of the treatment of trauma-associated haemorrhage it is apparent that new management paradigms bring to the ICU patients who have sustained greater injury loads, and who have more ischaemia, more inflammatory activation and more cell death. Trauma patients are still dying of multiple organ failure, but the patterns of organ failure have changed. To keep these patients alive, we need innovations that help to identify at-risk patients before they become unsalvageable, and to better manage prolonged ischaemia, cardiogenic shock, persistent multiple organ dysfunction and immunoparesis.
Focus in these areas may herald a new era of trauma resuscitation and a future generation of new survivors. Skip to main content Skip to sections. Advertisement Hide. Download PDF. Why are bleeding trauma patients still dying? Editorial First Online: 11 February Haemorrhage after injury contributes to over half of the five million traumatic deaths that occur every year. Despite improved haemorrhage control, many patients still die, and often not from exsanguination but later in their clinical course, through mechanisms which are not yet fully understood Fig.
