  • ATTN combat medics

    I was watching a zombie movie and it sparked a question.

    Lets just call it a "normal person" 5-6 to 6 foot 180 to 200Lb male.

    How many liters of blood loss can happen before a person with an injury (lets say upper or lower leg, so mobility can still be had) just doesn't have then energy to get away, move, crawl, etc from a dangerous area?

    The rusty wire, that holds the cork, that keeps the anger in, gives way...

    It will depend on the person, their state of health before the injury, and their mental motivation. I would suggest that the loss of 2 liters (4 units more or less) would be a very good start of that process for most people. Put another way that would be a 40% loss, or slightly more in most females.

    I have but one person on my ignore list. Can you guess who it is?
