Hypertonic fluid administration in patients with septic shock: A prospective randomized controlled pilot study
We assessed the short-term effects of hypertonic fluid versus isotonic fluid administration in patients with septic shock.

Hemodynamic measurements included mean arterial blood pressure (MAP), central venous pressure, stroke volume index,...[Show more]
