Abstract

INTRODUCTION: The contribution of fluid temperature to the effect of crystalloid fluid bolus therapy (FBT) in post-cardiac surgery patients is unknown. We evaluated the hemodynamic effects of FBT with fluid warmed to 40°C (warm FBT) versus room-temperature fluid. METHODS: In this single centre prospective before-and-after study, we evaluated the effects of 500 ml of warm versus room-temperature compound sodium lactate administered over 15% of baseline immediately after FBT and effect dissipation if the CI returned to 10% increase and dissipation as return to 0.3°C in 13 (52%) patients after room-temperature FBT versus 0 (0%) after warm FBT (p < 0.01). CI and MAP responsiveness was similar (1..
