The Colloid Crystalloid Question • Is one of the oldest. • Basic yet fundamental question. • The first intervention given. • To every patient. • Often several litres. A volume expander is a type of intravenous therapy that has the function of providing volume There are two main types of volume expanders: crystalloids and colloids. Crystalloids are aqueous solutions of mineral salts or other water- soluble. Colloids and crystalloids are types of fluids that are used for fluid replacement, often intravenously (via a tube straight into the blood).

More evidence needed as to the best concentration of crystalloid to use in resuscitation fluids Central venous access sites to prevent venous blood clots, blood vessel narrowing, and infection Heparin versus normal saline locking for prevention of occlusion in dristalloidi venous catheters in adults What is the effect of giving human albumin compared to saline to replace lost blood in critically ill or injured people.

For the most updated list of ABA Keywords and definitions go to https: Similarly, we are uncertain if colloids or crystalloids increase the number of adverse events.

Crystalloid vs colloid rx

Results from ongoing studies may increase our confidence in the evidence in future. NS is used frequently in intravenous drips IVs for patients who cannot take fluids orally and have developed or are in danger of developing dehydration or hypovolemia. N Engl J Med ; Goal-directed fluid therapy has been shown to improve outcomes after colorectal surgery, but the optimal type of i.

JAMA Nov 6; We are uncertain whether they are better than crystalloids at reducing death, need for blood transfusion or need for renal replacement therapy filtering the blood, with or without dialysis machines, if kidneys fail when given to critically ill people who need fluid replacement.


Evidence for blood transfusions for dextrans, and albumin or FFP, is uncertain. We also searched clinical trials registers. This is roughly 4 times more concentrated than medical “normal saline” of 0. When blood is lost, the greatest immediate need is to stop further blood loss. Key results We found moderate-certainty evidence that using colloids starches; dextrans; or albumin or FFP compared to crystalloids for fluid replacement probably makes little or no difference to the number of critically ill colloifi who die within 30 or 90 days, or by the end of study follow-up.

Crystalloid or colloid for goal-directed fluid therapy in colorectal surgery.

Views Read Edit View history. Lactated Ringer’sSodium bicarbonate. This is an update of a Cochrane Review last published in Colloids can be man-made e.

Critically ill people cristalloldi lose large amounts of blood because of trauma or burnsor have serious conditions or infections e. Albumin or FFP versus crystalloids. We found low-certainty evidence that there may be little or no difference between gelatins or crystalloids in mortality: We found moderate-certainty evidence that using starches probably slightly increases the need for blood transfusion.

All articles with dead external links Articles with dead external links from May Wikipedia articles in need of updating from November All Wikipedia articles in need of ccristalloidi. The heart pumps more blood with each beat. Evidence for blood transfusion was very low certainty 3 studieswith a low event rate or data not reported by intervention.

Colloids versus crystalloids for fluid resuscitation in critically ill patients.

Crystalloid and Colloid Solutions

With enough blood loss, ultimately red cristallidi cell levels drop too low for adequate tissue oxygenation, even if volume expanders maintain circulatory volume. The evidence is current to February Hespan, Voluven is controversial.


Certainty of the evidence Some study authors did not report study methods clearly and many did not register their studies before cristalloudi started, so we could not be certain whether the study outcomes were decided before or after they saw the results.

Secondary outcome measures included the incidence of postoperative complications, hospital length of stay, and the effect of trial fluids on coagulation and inflammation.

Ringer’s lactate or Ringer’s acetate is another isotonic solution often used for large-volume fluid replacement.

Effects of fluid resuscitation with colloids vs crystalloids on mortality in critically ill patients presenting with hypovolemic shock: Using albumin or FFP may make little or no difference to the need for renal replacement therapy. Using albumin or Cridtalloidi compared to crystalloids may make little or no difference to the need for renal replacement therapy.

Volume expander

Certainty of evidence may improve with inclusion of three ongoing studies and seven studies awaiting classification, in future updates. There is also a risk of hemodilution, which may occur with crystalloid administration. Its use in those who are very ill is associated with coploidi increased risk of death and kidney problems cristalllidi thus is not recommended in people with known inflammatory conditions such as renal impairment.

Colloids have larger molecules, cost more, and may provide swifter volume expansion in the intravascular space, but may induce allergic reactions, blood clotting disorders, and kidney failure.
