Hydroxyethyl starch (HES) 130/0.4 provides larger and faster increases in tissue oxygen tension in comparison with prehemodilution values than HES 70/0.5 or HES 200/0.5 in volunteers undergoing acute normovolemic hemodilution.

UNLABELLED Stable hemodynamics and improved rheology are important effects of hemodilution with hydroxyethyl starch (HES) infusions. One clinical indicator of improved rheology is increased tissue oxygen tension (tpO(2)). In this prospective, randomized, double-blinded, crossover study, we examined the effects of acute normovolemic hemodilution with HES 130/0.4 on hemodynamics and skeletal muscle tpO(2) in comparison with conventional HES solutions. Twelve healthy volunteers were randomly… CONTINUE READING
