Colloids Versus Crystalloids: A Clinical Standpoint

  • R. Klose
Part of the Update in Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine book series (UICM, volume 1)


The acknowledged goal of treatment in acute hypovolemia is to restore adaequate intravascular volume and normal tissue perfusion as rapidly as possibly.
