Comparison of the effect of combination of normal saline & half normal saline versus normal saline & lactate based balanced salt solution on acid base status and electrolyte homeostasis intraoperatively and on early graft function postoperatively in kidney transplantation

This study aimed to quantify changes in acid-base balance, different electrolytes (sodium, potassium, chloride & bicarbonate) following administration of different combinations of intravenous fluids during renal transplantation and to study their effect on early graft function postoperatively. In this double blind study, patients were randomized into two groups( n1=35,n2=39) to receive either combination of normal … Read more
