Relation of colloid osmotic pressure to arterial hypoxemia and cerebral edema during crystalloid volume loading of patients with diabetic ketoacidosis.

Abstract

The effect of crystalloid volume loading on serum colloid osmotic pressure, arterial oxygen (Po2), alveolar-arterial oxygen gradient (A-aDo2), and cerebral lateral ventricle dimensions was prospectively studied in 18 patients with diabetic ketoacidosis. Serial measurements showed concomitant decreases in colloid osmotic pressure, hematocrit, arterial Po2 (p… (More)
