Damage Control Resuscitation

What is Damage Control Resuscitation?
Hemorrhage is the leading cause of preventable death on the battlefield. Damage Control Resuscitation was developed to work synergistically with Damage Control Surgery and prioritizes non-surgical interventions, which may reduce morbidity and mortality from trauma and hemorrhage. The major principle of DCR is to restore homeostasis, prevent or mitigate the development of tissue hypoxia, oxygen debt and burden of shock, as well as coagulopathy. This clinical practice guideline details evidence-based best practices for addressing life-threatening injuries through aggressive hemorrhage control and early blood transfusion near the point of injury.
