Vascular permeability increase and plasma volume loss induced by endotoxin was attenuated by hypertonic saline with or without dextran.


Endotoxin given intravenously is known to cause plasma leakage and subsequent loss of circulating plasma volume. Hypertonic saline resuscitation has been successfully applied in hemorrhagic and traumatic shock, but its application for the treatment or prevention of septic or endotoxin shock is less well studied.
