dc.description.abstractInternal bleeding is defined as the loss of blood that occurs inside of a body cavity. After a traumatic injury, hemorrhage accounts for over 35% of pre-hospital deaths and 40% of deaths within the first 24 hours. Coagulopathy, a disorder in which the blood is not able to properly form clots, typically develops after traumatic injury and results in a higher rate of mortality. The current methods to treat internal bleeding and coagulopathy are inadequate due to the requirement of extensive medical equipment that is typically not available at the site of injury. To discover a potential route for future research, several current and novel treatment methods have been reviewed and analyzed. The aim of investigating different potential treatment options is to expand available knowledge, while also call attention to the importance of research in the field of treatment for internal bleeding and hemorrhage due to trauma.
