Armed forces search for ways to improve survival in the combat zone

Bethesda, Maryland As reported last December in the New England Journal of Medicine, the U.S. military's on-the-ground surgical strategy now aims at "damage control, not definitive repair, unless it can be done quickly." Today's mobile medical teams, equipped with powerful and efficient tools, provide care near the battlefront to treat extensive injuries resulting from mortar attacks and suicide bombers. Despite new strategies and improved care, hemorrhage (blood loss) caused by bullets and exploding munitions fragments continues to kill in combat.

Military experts believe that blood loss may be one of the most preventable causes of battlefield fatalities. With thousands of lives at risk and millions of dollars at stake for product development, two branches of the military are collaborating to find new resuscitative products that can be easily transported and used on the frontline. These products must be effective in reducing blood-loss-related fatalities. A new report outlines how the military can best identify, nurture and support the next generation of resuscitation fluids and adjunct therapies.

The Study
The new report, entitled Recommendations for Reviewing Research on Advanced First-Responder Resuscitation Fluids and Adjunct Therapies, was prepared at the request of the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command and the Office of Naval Research by the Life Sciences Research Office, Inc. (LSRO) (www.LSRO.org). LSRO is a non-profit research and analysis firm that distinguishes itself by its third-party independence and the use of seasoned staff researchers and outside experts to investigate important topic areas.

In the first phase of the study, LSRO's expert panel reviewed and ranked 59 research pre-proposals for resuscitation fluids and adjunct therapies in an effort to determine which held the most promise for improving survival from combat blood-loss and achieving sound sci
