Colloids versus crystalloids for fluid resuscitation in critically ill people – Cochrane Library (link to abstract – $ for full-text)

Summary: Colloids or crystalloids for fluid replacement in critically people – Cochrane Library (free)

“Using starches, dextrans, albumin or FFP (moderate-certainty evidence), or gelatins (low-certainty evidence), versus crystalloids probably makes little or no difference to mortality. 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)”.
