Abstract

Fluid administration in a condition of raised ICP with brain edema should have the effect of maintaining an adequate circulation volume without disturbing the electrolyte balance and without accelerating the brain edema. However, the usual normoosmolar fluid administration always has the risk of encouraging more brain edema which results in a further increase of ICP.
