There is also a risk of hemodilution, which may occur with crystalloid administration. Speak with a member of the team about providing Nursing Times for your whole team Are you a student nurse? We found moderate-certainty evidence that there is probably little or no difference between using albumin or FFP or using crystalloids in mortality at: Menu Home Back.
We compared a colloid suspended in any crystalloid solution versus a crystalloid isotonic or hypertonic. Gelatins versus crystalloids We found low-certainty evidence that there may be little or no difference between gelatins or crystalloids in mortality: For some outcomes, we had very few studies, which reduced our confidence in the evidence.
However, we are uncertain whether using other types of colloids, compared to crystalloids, makes a difference to whether people need a blood transfusion because the certainty of the evidence is very low. Demand supervision: Effects of fluid resuscitation with colloids vs crystalloids on mortality in critically ill patients presenting with hypovolemic shock: Your browser appears to have cookies disabled.
Revalidation User Guide Help. Selection criteria: Conclusions 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.
Are particular types of colloid solution safer for replacing blood fluids than others? Starches probably slightly increase the need for blood transfusion and RRT moderate-certainty evidence , and albumin or FFP may make little or no difference to the need for renal replacement therapy low-certainty evidence.
