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).

Otherwise, the choice to use crystalloid versus colloid should be based upon the comorbidities of the patient and the overall clinical picture. Starches versus crystalloids We found moderate-certainty evidence that there is probably little or no difference between using starches or crystalloids in mortality at: Evidence for blood transfusion was very low certainty 3 studieswith a low event rate or data not reported by intervention.
Similarly, we are uncertain if colloids or crystalloids increase the number of adverse events. It could also lead to significant pulmonary edema, especially in patients cristalloixi underlying cardiac systolic dysfunction or renal disease. We found little or no difference between groups in allergic reactions very low-certainty evidence.

Crystalloid vs colloid rx
Physiological dissociation is approximately 1. Using albumin or FFP may make little or no difference to the need for renal replacement therapy. There is no evidence that colloids are better than crystalloids in those who have had trauma, burns or surgery and as they are more expensive their use is not recommended.
Crystalloids fluids such as normal saline typically have a balanced electrolyte composition and expand total extracellular volume. In these situations, the only alternatives are blood transfusions, packed red blood cells, or oxygen therapeutics if available.
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 people who die.
We found little or no difference in allergic reactions RR 6. Some study authors did not report study methods clearly and many did not register their studies before they started, so we could not be certain whether the study outcomes were decided before or after they saw the results.
We found moderate-certainty evidence that starches probably slightly increase the need for blood transfusion RR 1. Independently, two review authors assessed studies for inclusion, extracted dataassessed risk of biasand synthesised findings.
We excluded neonates, elective surgery and caesarean section. In terms of selecting colloii in the perioperative period, most of the literature is extrapolated from critical care studies and there is no clear consensus.
For the most updated list of ABA Keywords and definitions go to https: Normal saline Coloidi is the commonly used term for a solution of 0. Colloids versus crystalloids for fluid resuscitation in critically ill patients.
We found moderate-certainty evidence that there is probably little or no difference between using starches or crystalloids in mortality at: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. JAMA Nov 6; You may also be interested in: We found little or no difference between starches or crystalloids in allergic reactions, but fewer participants given crystalloids reported itching or rashes.
A volume expander is a type of intravenous therapy that has the function of providing volume for the circulatory system. Very low-certainty evidence means we are uncertain whether either ceistalloidi affected adverse events: Colloid solutions broadly partitioned into synthetic fluids such as hetastarch and natural such as albumin exert a high oncotic pressure and thus expand volume via oncotic drag.
Since the lost blood was replaced with a suitable fluid, the now diluted blood flows more easily, even in the small vessels. The choice of fluids may also depend on the chemical properties of the medications being given. Studies compared colloids starches; dextrans; gelatins; or albumin or FFP with crystalloids. It is an intravenous colloid that behaves much like blood filled with albumins. We are uncertain whether either fluid type reduces need for blood transfusion RR 1.
Colloids, on the other hand, may rarely trigger an anaphylactic reaction. Colloids or crystalloids for fluid replacement in critically people Background Critically ill people may lose large amounts of blood because of trauma or burnsor have serious conditions or infections e. 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 coloidi the number of critically ill people who die within 30 or 90 days, collodi by the end of study follow-up.
However in some circumstances, hyperbaric oxygen therapy can maintain adequate tissue oxygenation even if red blood cell levels are below normal life-sustaining levels. Few studies reported adverse events specifically, allergic reactions, itching, or rashesso we are uncertain whether either fluid type causes fewer adverse events very low-certainty evidence.
We also found low-certainty evidence that using gelatins or crystalloids may make little or no difference to the number of deaths within each of these time points. We found moderate-certainty evidence that using starches probably slightly increases the need for blood transfusion.
Certainty of the evidence Some study authors did not report study methods clearly and many did not register their studies before they started, so we could not be certain whether the study outcomes were decided before or after they saw the results.

We found low-certainty evidence that there may be little or no difference between gelatins or crystalloids in mortality: It may be used for fluid replacement.
