BACKGROUND: Fluid resuscitation is widely used for treating traumatic hemorrhagic shock. We focused on the efficacies of different fluid resuscitation methods on improving coagulation function of traumatic hemorrhagic shock (THS) rats.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sprague-Dawley rats (n = 100) were randomly divided into 5 groups, namely, Sham group, THS group, acetic acid Ringer's fluid (AR) group, hydroxyethyl starch solution (HES) group, and AR + HES group. A THS rat model was established by left femoral bleeding. The effects of different fluid resuscitation methods on conventional coagulation function parameters, Rotational thromboelastometry parameters, platelet-derived microparticles and endothelial cell-derived microparticles content of the THS rats were detected by ACL TOP system, rotation thromboelastometry, and flow cytometry, respectively.

RESULTS: Using AR and HES alone had no significant effect on the coagulation function of THS rats, but the two in combination reduced the increases of thrombin time, prothrombin time, activated part thrombin time, international normalized ratio, fibrin degradation products, D-dimer and the decreases of platelet count and fibrinogen concentration induced by THS. The CT and CFT were significantly reduced, whereas α and MCF were increased in the THS rats in AR + HES group. The combination of AR and HES reversed the effect of THS on elevating platelet-derived microparticles and endothelial cell-derived microparticle levels. In addition, the coagulation was relatively the optimal in the AR, HES, and AR + HES groups when the mice were resuscitated to a mean arterial pressure of 60 mmHg.

CONCLUSIONS: AR combined with HES has a significant protective effect on coagulation function of THS rats when the mean arterial pressure reaches 60 mmHg.
