Optimal Fluid Resuscitation for Trauma Patients
The purpose of this study is to determine if the overall fluid requirements for the first 24 hours after admission will be reduced with Hextend versus a standard of care crystalloid resuscitation fluid.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case Control
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Optimal Fluid Resuscitation for Trauma Patients|
- Mortality [ Time Frame: From hospital arrival up to an average of 3.5 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||October 2007|
|Study Completion Date:||July 2010|
|Primary Completion Date:||July 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Following severe multi-system traumatic injury, the first 24 hours of standard resuscitation fluid will be either Hextend or crystalloid depending upon attending preference. No tests or interventions will be performed for research purposes.
Data will be collected prospectively from patient medical records and attending clinicians to monitor fluid requirements, hemodynamics and outcome.
