Abstract/Text

The choice of fluid for volume resuscitation is a difficult one. No definite indication of the superiority of one fluid over others is available. Research provides some implications for practice. Professor Gattinoni comprehensively compared albumin, artificial colloids, and various crystalloids in the light of recent literature and the expected results of his ALBIOS Trial.
