Abstract

In a previous study, we found that ovine fetal blood volume returned to normal in 3 h after a slow hemorrhage of 31% over 2 h; volume was slightly elevated at 24-25 h. In the present study, we explored the time required for blood volume restoration in late gestation fetal sheep following a rapid hemorrhage over 10 min. The rate of hemorrhage was constant within each fetus but varied among fetuses from 13.5 to 32.2%. Two fetuses that were hemorrhaged 32% of their initial blood volume over 10 min underwent cardiovascular collapse during the hemorrhage. In 10 fetuses that were hemorrhaged 21.0 ± 1.7% (SE) over 10 min 6.5 h were required for blood volume to return to control. Fetal arterial pressure, venous pressure, and heart rate decreased during and immediately after the hemorrhage and returned to normal within 1 h. Plasma arginine vasopressin (AVP) concentration and plasma renin activity (PRA) underwent large increases following the rapid hemorrhage. Volume restoration at 5-7 h posthemorrhage correlated negatively with PRA and norepinephrine (NE) concentration immediately after the hemorrhage. Three of the 10 fetuses died overnight, and in the remaining seven fetuses blood volume was 8.8 ± 3.3% below control (P
