KEYNOTE PRESENTATION

CRYSTALLOIDS AND COLLOIDS: WHAT REALLY MATTERS?

KEYNOTE PRESENTATION

Your congress would not be complete without a frank talk from one of our favourite speakers, Luciano Gattinoni. We won’t ruin the full surprise, but this long-term LIVES faculty member will focus on one of the hottest unresolved debates still in the field: the use of crystalloids and colloids. Watch this session LIVE in Vienna or online HERE

“Fluid administration should be tailored to patient characteristics. Synthetic colloids should be avoided when possible, especially in patients at risk for kidney injury. In critically ill patients with suspected increased permeability, colloids may not be superior to crystalloids in expanding plasma volume. Albumin appears to be less harmful than synthetic colloids, although its beneficial effects need to be further investigated[1].”
