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

Abstract

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)
