PurposeWe investigated, first, the safety of use and stability of a plasma substitute—hydroxyethyl starch (HES)—kept in a warming cabinet for a long period, and then the effect on body core temperature of the prewarmed HES in patients during urological surgery.MethodsIn the first part of the study, HES colloid solutions (500 ml per pack; Hespander) were kept in a warming cabinet (40°C) for 3 months and were tested for biological and chemical safety and stability. In the second part of the study… CONTINUE READING
