The Compensatory Reserve - PCRF Journal Club by Dave Page, Victor A. Convertino, Megan Corry

This month, we were thrilled to have Dr. Victor A. Convertino join us for a discussion of his research on the Compensatory Reserve Index (CRI), a machine model that detects and trends central blood volume reduction in real time and permits a more specific picture of blood loss than traditional vital signs.

This study, entitled "Individual-Specific, Beat-to-Beat Trending of Significant Human Blood Loss: The Compensatory Reserve," was authored by Victor A. Convertino, Jeffrey T. Howard, Carmen Hinojosa-Laborde, Sylvain Cardin, Paul Batchelder, Jane Mulligan, Gregory Z. Grudic, Steven L. Moulton, and David B. MacLeod, and will be published August 2015 in Shock
