MENA MIRANDA, Vivian R.; RUZA TARRIO, Francisco  y  CASTRO PACHECO, Bertha L.. Soluciones utilizadas en el tratamiento de la hipovolemia. Rev Cubana Pediatr [online]. 2001, vol.73, n.2, pp. 86-94. ISSN 1561-3119.

An updating on the most used substances in volume therapy is made. It is stated that the controversy aroused by the use of crystalloids/colloids is still standing, although efforts are made to find the ideal substance to reestablish volemia in an appropiate way with the minimum of adverse reactions and cost. As regards colloids, emphasis is made on the disadvantages of the use of albumin and its substitution by other colloid volume expanders, such as gelatins and starches. Other types of oxygen transporting substances as fluorocarbons and synthetic haemoglobins are under clinical assay. No therapeutic superiority has been found yet.

Palabras clave : SHOCK [therapy]; SOLUTIONS [therapeutic use]; COLLOIDS [therapeutic use]; ALBUMINS [therapeutic use]; GELATIN [therapeutic use]; INTENSIVE CARE; CHILD.
