The True Cause of Hemorrhagic Shock
Shock is most commonly seen after:
Mass Casualty Events
If not quickly treated, patients go into shock
Blood Pressure Instability
Hypovolemic Shock is caused by insufficient fluid (blood) volume
It has been known that the Sodium Pump is inhibited, but no one knew why...
General knowledge about the Sodium Pump:
On every cell in every living thing
Critical to all cellular life
Regulating cell volume
Maintaining membrane potential
Our founders believe they identified the cause!
It turns out a "shock toxin" released naturally after an injury that inhibits the sodium pump - causing shock and its symptoms.
We then tested an antibody to this target, and found it could reverse shock when the animal had less than 5 minutes to live, stabilizing blood pressure and extending their life the full 4 hours of the study.
