Resuscitation Fluids and Endotoxin-Induced Myocardial Dysfunction: Is Selection a Load-Independent Differential Issue?
Hogue B et al. – Hypertonic saline solution was also cardioprotective by early prevention of myocardial dysfunction and by reducing cardiac apoptosis. Fluid infusions have distinct load–independent structural/biological impacts on endotoxin–induced myocardial dysfunction. Albumin and hypertonic saline solution are the most pleiotropic fluids in protecting the heart after a “sepsis” hit.
