Therapeutic Action

Plasma volume expander, colloid


No indications for MSF settings and contexts

Not included in MSF protocols

Colloid volume expanders are associated with severe adverse effects including allergic reactions (anaphylactic shock), acute kidney injury, colloid-induced coagulopathy, and increased risk of bleeding.

Synthetic colloids should not be used and do not replace blood products. They have no value in the management of haemorrhage and are potentially harmful.

Instructions for use

Prefer the solutions of dextrose 5%/ ringer lactate and/or dextrose 10%/ sodium chloride 0.18%.

Modified fluid gelatin has been removed from all the kits.
