    In baboons, the typical cellular response to hemorrhagic shock failed to appear in totally ischemic extremities or in extremities cross circulated with normal donor blood. Cross circulation from donors in shock, however, induced muscle cell swelling and intracellular sodium gain in normal tissue almost immediately. These findings suggest that circulating factors affect the cell membrane during hemorrhagic shock in primates.
