United States Department of Defence - Broad Agency Award

Optimisation of Ultra-Small Volume Adenosine, Lidocaine and Mg2+ (ALM) Fluid Resuscitation and 72hr Stabilisation Drip for Uncontrolled Haemorrhage and TBI

Indicative Funding
$693,965 over 2 years
Summary
The resuscitation and stabilisation properties of ALM 'one-two treatment' will be investigated in rats after uncontrolled blood loss ? traumatic brain injury, and a translational arm in pigs followed for 72hrs to mimic prolonged far-forward retrieval delays. The aim is to show improved survival is associated with improved cardiac function, reduced inflammation, less coagulopathy and less secondary 'it' complications. The ALM therapy has the potential to reduce morbidity and mortality on the battlefield by buying time for treatment, stablisation and preparedness of casualities for safer evacuation. The study also has broad-spectrum public purpose for pre-hospital trauma and aeromedical transport.

Geoffrey Dobson and Hayley Letson in collaboration with Asger Granfeldt (College of Medicine & Dentistry and The Aarhus School of Business)

United States Department of Defence - Medical Research Acquisition Activity

A new Ultra-Small Volume Fluid for Far-Forward, Noncompressible Hemorrhage and Traumatic Brain Injury

Indicative Funding
$643,683
Summary
To provide USSOCOM with a new small-volume hypotensive fluid and drip to treat the critically wounded in austere, remote locations. The hypothesis to be tested is that small-volume 3% NaCI ALM will show a unique set of resuscitative and restorative properties that will maintain MAP in the hypotensive range with sufficient cardiac output and oxygen delivery to protect the brain and other organs during uncoltrolled bleeding with or without TBI.
