Abstract

Synopsis:

In a large randomized trial of two fluid management strategies in patients with ALI or ARDS, investigators found no difference in mortality between liberal or conservative fluid strategies. In spite of arguments about early liberation from the ventilator and shorter ICU stays, the benefits of the rather complex “conservative” fluid management strategy remain unclear.
