Case Study
The article presents information on a case study that was conducted to analyze whether fluid resuscitation with colloids reduces mortality rate in critically ill patients. Meta-analyses showed that fluid resuscitation with colloids did not differ from resuscitation with crystalloids for mortality. The study shows that fluid resuscitation with colloids does not reduce mortality more than resuscitation with crystalloids in critically ill patients.
