The initial fluid management to correct shock requires the goal-orientated approach already described with bolus therapy using isotonic Ringer's lactate
In contrast to these current treatment guidelines for EAHE, administration of isotonic fluids such as Ringer's lactate and isotonic saline (0.
Administering Ringer's lactate to symptomatic athletes without a blood test to rule out or confirm a diagnosis of hyponatraemia should be discouraged, as it can result in a fatal outcome.
The Ringer's lactate
infusion rate was increased to compensate for a fall in blood pressure and the vital signs, including blood pressure, were monitored every minute for the next 15 minutes.
A recent study has shown that, in patients undergoing renal transplantation, potassium concentrations were better controlled with Ringer's lactate
than with saline.
Using 20 U/L of IV 5% dextrose Ringer's lactate
at a rate of 600 cc/hour will saturate every oxytocin receptor in the uterus; there's no reason to use more.
A continuous or intermittent irrigation with Ringer's lactate
or normal saline solution is needed for satisfactory vision.
Reich's technique of leaving 1,000-2,000 cc of Ringer's lactate
in the peritoneal cavity I do not know to what extent this has been adopted, nor can I accept that a salt solution is bacteriostatic or bacteriocidal.
In March, data was presented at the Annual Meeting of the American College of Surgeons' Committee on Trauma showing that Hemopure stabilized severe hemorrhagic shock better than standard fluid resuscitation with Ringer's lactate
and equally well as blood transfusion in a preclinical study in animals.
In the late 1970s I developed a laparoscopic technique to prevent infection by obtaining absolute hemostasis underwater using Ringer's lactate
solution and leaving 1,000-2,000 cc of this solution in the peritoneal cavity as bacteria can't grow in salt solution.
Biopure's oxygen therapeutics consist of bovine hemoglobin that has been ultrapurified, chemically cross-linked for stability and formulated in a balanced salt solution similar to Ringer's lactate
Oxyglobin is a sterile, intravenously administered solution consisting of purified, chemically modified hemoglobin in modified Ringer's lactate
, a commonly used resuscitative fluid.
