Abstract : In preparation for the development of a canine model of combined injury, we prospectively evaluated, in vitro, the fluid-phase status of the coagulation system in beagle dogs. Utilizing practical and well-established testing procedures, we obtained baseline data on animals undergoing surgical procedures and/or limited exposure to radiation and/or infection.
