Cerebral electrophysiologic effects of resuscitation with hypertonic saline-dextran after hemorrhage.

Abstract

When brain injury accompanies hemorrhage, resuscitation with hypertonic saline (HS) improves intracranial pressure (ICP) and elastance; however, its effect on brain function after a traumatic or ischemic insult has not been assessed. This study compares the electrophysiologic response to hemorrhage and resuscitation with 7.5% NaCl + 6% dextran (HSD), 6… (More)
