Abstract:

Minature swine are a sensitive and responsive animal for the study of burn shock resuscitation. The sodium loads requisite for resuscitation of burned swine can exert roughly the same effects when administered in volumes of from 25 to 50 less than those commonly employed clinically. Sodium excretion is more dependent upon the sodium load than upon the concentration of the saline solution. Plasma administration had no demonstrable resuscitative effect over and above that provided by the sodium and volume given in this model.
