Overestimation of the plasma volume determined by the indocyanine green (ICG) dilution method (PV-ICG) may occur after burns, since this dye has the potential of extravasation in the presence of the capillary protein leakage. Assuming that the initial distribution volume of glucose (IDVG) consistently indicates the extracellular fluid volume of highly perfused organs including plasma, overestimation of the PV-ICG can be detected by a higher PV-ICG/IDVG ratio. The present study was designed to… CONTINUE READING
