The rational choice of a plasma substitute for states of hypovolaemia depends partly on its colloid osmotic pressure (COP). We have measured the COP of 108 samples of plasma substitute across selectively permeable membranes which retain molecules greater than 10000 dalton (COP10) and 50000 dalton (COP50) the ratio COP50/COP10 providing a potential index of diffusibility of the smaller molecules across capillary membranes. 6% Hespan solution showed a particularly favourable COP50/COP10 ratio at… CONTINUE READING
