The introduction of resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta has the potential to dramatically affect the management of noncompressive torso hemorrhage. Early results from clinical application of this new tool have been promising, although high-quality data are still needed to understand the best clinical management strategies. In this infographic, we review the essential steps for resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta usage and the associated considerations for anesthetic management of this patient population.

EF indicates ejection fraction; LV, left ventricle; MAP, mean arterial pressure; SBP, systolic blood pressure.
