In 1959, I Boerema demonstrated that normothermic swine could be bled abruptly to hemoglobin levels of 0.5g/dL and then be pressurized in a hyperbaric chamber to three atmospheres while being ventilated with 100% oxygen and being given IV fluid resuscitation with D5RL solution. The animals were kept at depth for 15 minutes with ?Life without Blood? and were then re-transfused with their shed blood. When back at surface, the swine walked off unimpaired. In 2014 J Kheir asphyxiated normothermic rabbits for 15 minutes. The animals still with clamped endotracheal tubes were resuscitated with a solution of oxygen gas filled microparticles. The animals after unclamping of the endotracheal tube hopped off unimpaired. We have replicated I Boerema's work in swine keeping the normothermic animals for 55 minutes at 60 fsw before returning shed blood and the animals have walked off unimpaired with long-term survival. We monitored the swine through a braincase burrhole by Lycox polarographic catheter determination of brain tissue oxygen tension during the exsanguination insult. Swine kept on surface with 100% oxygen ventilation and IV D5RL resuscitation dropped their brain tissue oxygenation from 35 mmHg to 0 mmHg while animals at three atmospheres maintained their brain tissue oxygen at 35 mmHg. Hyperbaric Medicine is a low technology interventional therapy, which can be made to be present in the military far forward as well as in the pre-hospital EMS and in emergency departments of trauma centers. It is expected that hyperbaric oxygen will be a part of future ACLS and ATLS.
