Fluid boluses are often administered with the aim of improving tissue perfusion in critically ill patients. It is unclear whether the temperature of the fluid has an impact on the hemodyna...
Intraoperative fluid demand will be monitored by Esophageal Doppler in lean and obese patients.
This observational study compares the influence of Ringer's Lactate solution and Ringer's Acetate solution on organ function scores following severe burn injury.
The purpose is to characterize the in-line pressure profiles associated with several infusion technique factors during subcutaneous infusion of Lactated Ringer's solution, preceded by rec...
Fluid management is a fundamental aspect of anesthesia. Several monitorization methods have been introduced to optimize fuid management. To date neither of them were ideal. Corrected flow...
A new postcardiac surgery fluid resuscitation strategy was implemented in our Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (CVICU) to implement evidence-based practice. We transitioned from a primarily albumin ...
The aims of this study were to describe the use of Ringer's lactate (LR) or normal saline (NS) for resuscitation among children with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and compare the effect of fluid type on...
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 de...
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 ...
Peritoneal lavage is often used for peritonitis, however, the volume and type of lavage fluid varies. Saline or Ringer's solution are used most often and lavage is performed until the fluid is clear. ...
Megestrol acetate is a progestogen with actions and uses similar to those of the progestogens in general. It also has anti-androgenic properties. It is given by mouth in the palliative treatment or as an adjunct to other therapy in endometrial carcinoma and in breast cancer. Megestrol acetate has been approved to treat anorexia and cachexia. (From Reynolds JEF(Ed): Martindale: The Extra Pharmacopoeia (electronic version). Micromedex, Inc, Englewood, CO, 1995)
An anti-androgen that, in the form of its acetate (CYPROTERONE ACETATE), also has progestational properties. It is used in the treatment of hypersexuality in males, as a palliative in prostatic carcinoma, and, in combination with estrogen, for the therapy of severe acne and hirsutism in females.
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.
An enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of acetate esters and water to alcohols and acetate. EC 220.127.116.11.
21-Hydroxypregn-4-ene-3,20-dione. Desoxycorticosterone acetate (DOCA) is used as replacement therapy in ADDISON DISEASE.
