High Salt & Magnesium Solution Shows Anti-Inflammatory Effects & Restoration of the Blood’s Clotting Ability

Herald Sun – Australian Scientists Say Lab Liquid Shot to the Heart Could Save Dying Soldiers

Wounded soldiers or injured civilians in remote locations could benefit in the future from an injection that stabilizes the heart following massive blood loss. Prof Dobson, from James Cook University, said catastrophic hemorrhage was the leading cause of preventable death on the battlefield, where up to 90 per cent of combat deaths occur within an hour after injury.

The high salt and magnesium solution, which has been tested on animals, has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects and to restore the blood’s clotting ability, which can be disrupted by trauma. “The wider implications are for military and pre-hospital civilian use, in rural and remote areas, where nothing currently exists,” Prof Dobson said.
