Figure S1. Representative examples of the sublingual microvasculature using an orthogonal polarization spectral (OPS) imaging device: (A) Normal capillary density and perfusion rate at baseline (T0); (B) Decreased capillary density, stop flow or sluggish intermittent capillary flow rate (non-continuous red blood cell lines in capillaries) at the end of hemorrhagic shock (T2); (C) Decreased capillary density with intermittent capillary flow rate at the end of partial resuscitation phase (T6)
