Cardiodynamic response to Escherichia coli endotoxemia: effects of fluid resuscitation.


We tested the influence of in vivo volume resuscitation on intrinsic contractile properties of left ventricular (LV) preparations of endotoxemic guinea pigs. Escherichia coli endotoxin (LPS)-injected animals were divided into nonresuscitated and resuscitated groups. Volume resuscitation improved cardiac output and stroke volume, increased arterial pH and… (More)
