OBJECTIVE: To test our hypothesis that hemoglobin-based oxygen carrier (HBOC)-201 resuscitation in hemorrhagic shock (HS) will not lead to increased organ injury and dysfunction. DESIGN: Three swine HS models simulating military-relevant delayed evacuation: a) moderate controlled HS, b) severe controlled HS, and c) severe uncontrolled HS. SETTING: Military research laboratory. SUBJECTS: Swine. INTERVENTIONS: Swine were anesthetized/intubated and instrumented. To induce HS, in two controlled hemorrhage experiments, 40% (moderate controlled HS) or 55% (severe controlled HS) of blood volume was withdrawn; in an uncontrolled HS experiment, the liver was crushed/lacerated. During a 4-hr "prehospital phase," pigs were resuscitated with HBOC-201 (HBOC) or Hextend (HEX) or were nonresuscitated (NON). Upon "hospital arrival," liver injury was repaired (severe uncontrolled HS), blood or saline was infused, hemodynamics were monitored, and blood was collected. Upon animal death and/or 72 hrs, necropsy was followed by histopathologic evaluation of organ injury (hematoxylin and eosin, electron microscopy) and immunohistochemistry of oxidative potential (3-nitrotyrosine). Significance (p < .05) was assessed by Kruskal-Wallis, analysis of variance/Bonferroni, and mixed procedure tests. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: Survival was significantly higher with HBOC than HEX only with severe uncontrolled HS (p = .002). Myocardial necrosis/fibroplasia, fluid requirements, cardiac output, and cardiac enzymes were generally similar or lower in HBOC than HEX pigs, but creatine kinase-MB (but not creatine kinase-MB/creatine kinase ratio) was higher with HBOC in moderate controlled HS. Alveolar/interstitial pulmonary edema was similar with HBOC and HEX, but Po2 was higher with HBOC in severe uncontrolled HS. Jejunal villar epithelial and hepatocellular necrosis were similarly minimal to moderate in all groups. Minimal biliary changes occurred exclusively with HBOC. Aspartate aminotransferase, lactate dehydrogenase, and alkaline phosphatase were generally higher with HBOC than HEX. Mild renal papillary injury occurred more frequently with HBOC, but consistent patterns for urine output, blood urea nitrogen, and creatinine, were not seen. The 3-nitrotyrosine staining intensity was not different. CONCLUSIONS: In comparison with hetastarch, HBOC-201 resuscitation of swine with HS increased survival (with severe HS), did not increase evidence of oxidative potential, and had histopathologic and/or functional effects on organs that were clinically equivocal (myocardium, lungs, hepatic parenchyma, jejunum, and renal cortex/medulla) and potentially adverse (hepatobiliary and renal papilla). The effects of HBOC-201-resuscitation in HS should be corroborated in controlled clinical trials.
