Resuscitation in the post-HES era – Monty Mythen
4:45 PM - 5:00 PM
Fri Nov 23, 2018
Grote Zaal

The first question is whether this is the post-HES era. If we agree it is, (I may not agree) then what are the alternatives? Do colloids really make a difference? Is context critical to fluid choice? If the patient is hypovolemic and the glycocalyx is likely to be in good health are colloids a rational choice? Does the inevitable extra salt and water really matter if you only use crystalloids?

Learning objectives

  1. Learn about the alternative fluid choices
  2. Know the issues with a crystalloid-only strategy
  3. Acknowledge the remaining role of starches, current industry-driven and independent research and the upcoming European legislation on their use
