Experimental Cerebral Edema, Isotonic Intravenous Infusions, Mannitol, Serum Osmolality, Electrolytes, Brain Water, Intracranial Pressure, and Cerebral Blood Flow
Mannitol and intravenous fluid resuscitation are therapies that are commonly employed in multiple trauma. Much discussion exists as to the correct dosage of mannitol, but the concomitant fluid resuscitation, mannitol and response to this agent, has received limited attention (James 1980). The current study addresses isotonic saline hydration, mannitol, ICP and CBF.
