      • 1.
        1. Plasma volume is restored to control values 4 hours after a hemorrhage regardless of the magnitude of the hemorrhage and regardless of the availability of exogenous water following the hemorrhage.
      • 2.
        2. Total blood volume 4 hours after a hemorrhage is the resultant of the amount of blood withdrawn plus totally restored (initial) plasma volume.
