Intraoperative Hypotensive Resuscitation - Podcast #61

Download

08/02/2016

In this episode, we discuss an interesting study which was recently published in the Journal of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery (see link below) with the study’s lead author, Dr. Matthew Carrick, and the senior author, Dr. Kenneth Mattox.  Drs. Carrick and Mattox describe the extension of the hypotensive resuscitation paradigm beyond the trauma bay and into the operating room, as well as some details about how they were able to accomplish this prospective, randomized trial with exception from informed consent.  In characteristic form, Dr. Mattox also challenges the audience to take on more areas of untested dogma — what he calls the “sacred cows” of patient care — and to make an impact in clinical science research.
