Sepsis is associated with altered blood rheology. Fluid infusion is an essential component of therapy for septic shock. The purpose of this study was to compare the rheologic changes associated with saline, albumin, and hydroxyethyl starch in sepsis. Whole blood was obtained from five normal controls and five patients with severe sepsis. The samples were centrifuged, and the erythrocytes were resuspended in autologous plasma or autologous plasma plus the buffy coat at an hematocrit (Hct) of 40… CONTINUE READING
