"Accurate Decision Support for Patients with Hemorrhage: It’s NOT About Monitoring – It’s About Physiology!"

Victor Convertino, PhD

Sr. Research Physiologist
Task Area Manager
Tactical Combat Casualty Care Research (TCCCR)
US Army Institute for Surgical Research

Victor Convertino is a contributor to many areas of research including: regulation of plasma volume during acute and chronic exercise; interrelationship of plasma volume and electrolytes with adaptation to microgravity and thermoregulation during heat and exercise exposures; effect of acute and chronic exercise on blood pressure regulation and orthostatic competence; development of exercise training and countermeasures for astronauts and crew members of high-performance aircraft; and physiological adaptation to varying gravity environments. Perhaps his most important work is his current research designed to develop decision-support algorithms, therapeutic devices, and new Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) doctrine to advance the capabilities of combat medics to save lives of battlefield casualties.
