Saline or Albumin for fluid resuscitation in patients with traumatic brain injury

Results of the landmark intensive care research study, SAFE TBI, showed that the choice of resuscitation fluids affects the chance of patients with brain injury surviving.

These findings (reported in 2007) will form the development of a clinical algorithm for the management of severe brain injury as part of the International Brain Trauma Foundation, a global organisation that improves the outcome of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) patients by producing international guidelines.
