This meta-analysis was conducted to compare the effects of goal-directed fluid therapy (GDFT) versus conventional fluid therapy (CFT) in colorectal surgery on patients' postoperative outcome and to detect whether the results differ between studies with the Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) protocol and those without, between studies using different devices for GDFT, or between different surgical approaches (laparoscopy or laparotomy).

Standardized protocols are provided for maintenance and replacement fluid therapy in critically ill patients. However, unintended fluid sources (analgesics, antibiotics and other drugs) are not always...
Sepsis and septic shock are potentially life-threatening complications of infection that are associated with high morbidity and mortality in adults and children. Fluid therapy is regarded as a crucial...
Clinical evaluation of the effects of fluid therapy remains cumbersome and strategies are based on the assumption that normalization of macrohemodynamic variables will result in parallel improvement i...
Assessing the volemic status of patients undergoing surgery is part of the routine management for the anesthesiologist. This assessment is commonly performed by means of dynamic indexes based on the c...
Sepsis and septic shock are common diseases with high mortality rates. Although volume therapy has been a central component of sepsis therapy for decades, the choice of optimal fluid and fluid intake ...
This study is aim to assess the effect of goal-directed intraoperative fluid therapy on patient's postoperative incidence rates of complications, length of hospitalization and hospitalizat...
The purpose of the study is to compare non-obese patients (BMI≤ 30 kg/m2)versus obese patients (BMI> 30 kg/m2) in regard of their respective needs for intraoperative fluid therapy during...
Excessive fluid loss is often reported in gastrointestinal surgical patients due to preoperative fasting and bowel preparations. Insufficient fluid infusion may cause hypovolemia and tissu...
The purpose of the study is to test whether colloid-based goal-directed intraoperative fluid management leads to less perioperative morbidity compared to crystalloid-based goal-directed in...
Although fluid therapy is of paramount value in anesthetic practice, there is no guideline available for perioperative fluid management in major abdominal surgery. So, there is a need to e...
Therapeutic practices which are not currently considered an integral part of conventional allopathic medical practice. They may lack biomedical explanations but as they become better researched some (PHYSICAL THERAPY MODALITIES; DIET; ACUPUNCTURE) become widely accepted whereas others (humors, radium therapy) quietly fade away, yet are important historical footnotes. Therapies are termed as Complementary when used in addition to conventional treatments and as Alternative when used instead of conventional treatment.
Therapy whose basic objective is to restore the volume and composition of the body fluids to normal with respect to WATER-ELECTROLYTE BALANCE. Fluids may be administered intravenously, orally, by intermittent gavage, or by HYPODERMOCLYSIS.
Critical care treatment using intensive monitoring and aggressive management of perioperative hemodynamics in high risk patients,
Fluid collected from nipple by gentle aspiration. The fluid contains cells and extracellular fluid from the breast ductal epithelium.
Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
