All volumes are ml kg-1.

Volume transferred, volume moved from microcirculation to macrocirculation(from Fig. 6).

% volume recovered, volume transferred divided by hemorrhage volume (12.3 ml kg-1)×100%.

Vmic, estimated volume of microcirculation based on Hctmic and Fcell (from Fig. 5).

% of Vmic transferred, volume transferred divided by Vmic×100%.
