Hypertonic Saline Resuscitation Restores Inflammatory Cytokine Balance in Post-Traumatic Hemorrhagic Shock Patients

Fluid resuscitation can often exacerbate injury sustained during hemorrhagic shock and is associated with altered immuno-inflammatory events. Early monocyte dysregulation and excessive proinflammatory cytokine production are thought to play a key role in the development of post-traumatic multiorgan dysfunction in resuscitated trauma patients. Compared with… CONTINUE READING
