How to determine the trauma patient’s response to IV fluid resuscitation?

This topic involves several key concepts that include permissive hypotension (restrictive fluid resuscitation), which is a strategy that restricts fluid use before any bleeding is controlled to avoid excessive blood loss” Mizushima et al (2017).

Abstract:

The topic of damage control resuscitation has become increasingly popular during the last several years [1-4]. This topic involves several key concepts that include permissive hypotension (restrictive fluid resuscitation), which is a strategy that restricts fluid use before any bleeding is controlled to avoid excessive blood loss. However, the related studies have mainly evaluated patients with penetrating injury and in the pre-hospital setting. Therefore, it is unclear whether this approach provides benefits in cases of blunt trauma or in-hospital setting.
