Most potentially-preventable deaths following major trauma are caused by uncontrolled bleeding (Nevin & Brohi 2017).

Researchers have found that early, high-dose fluid resuscitation may cause trauma patients experiencing severe haemorrhage to suffer adverse effects such as dilutional coagulopathy or acceleration of the haemorrhage (Kudo, Yoshida & Kushimoto 2017; Das, Anosike & Waseem 2020).

Nickson (2019) describes permissive hypotension, also known as hypotensive resuscitation or low-volume resuscitation, as a controversial and uncommon method of fluid resuscitation that may result in more desirable patient outcomes.
