Conference paper


The infusion of plasma protein solutions or colloidal plasma substitutes is a well-known therapy not only for volume deficiency, but also for cerebral and peripheral ischemic diseases [1]. Besides replacement of the volume, the improvement in flow properties of the blood explains the improvement of clinical symptoms associated with hypovolemic conditions such as shock [2]. In the case of ischemic disease such as chronic arterial occlusion, however, the clinical effectiveness of an isovolemic infusion is attributed solely to an improvement in the flow properties of the blood [3, 4]; under hemodilution, the cardiac output is also raised [5].
