We previously reported that intravenous (i.v.) administration of large volumes (0.2 ml/g) of either an isotonic dextrose-free solution or 5% dextrose solution given over 18 h after closed head trauma (CHT) in rats did not significantly affect neurological severity score or brain tissue specific gravity. However, it is possible that with more rapid administration, isotonic or 5% dextrose i.v. solutions may alter neurological outcome after CHT. Our study examined whether neurological severity… CONTINUE READING
