Blood substitutes such as hemoglobin-based oxygen carriers (HBOC) have tremendous potential to improve pre hospital fluid resuscitation in both civilian and military populations. This chapter reviews goals and current recommendations of pre hospital resuscitation, the historical development of HBOC and initial clinical trials, and future developments that may improve pre hospital resuscitation.
