Hemorrhage is a devastating event that can occur in the perioperative period. It is estimated that 2.35 in 1000 patients will experience hemorrhage associate with surgery. Adverse outcomes affecting patient morbidity, mortality and quality of life are associated with hemorrhage. Timely detection, diagnosis and appropriate intervention in the setting of hemorrhage are imperative to reduce adverse outcomes of shock such as end organ damage, chronic disability or death. Anesthesia practitioners hold the charge of monitoring and managing the patient’s hemodynamic status and play an integral role in the detection and management of the hemorrhaging patient.
