Descript X, 150 p. online resource


Volume therapy, or infusion therapy, is used worldwide for the treatment of perfusion disorders, particularly for hypovolemia. In addition to anesthesia, volume therapy is used to improve microcirculation in neurological, neurosurgical, otorhinolaryngological, ophthalmological and angiological treatments. The book shows that treatment effects as well as undesired side effects such as coagulation disorders can be optimized through the choice of the right plasma substitute. This book deals with the question of whether crystalloids or colloids are preferable, which artificial colloids are best suited, and how oxygen-carrying solutions of the future will affect therapy in the years to come
