Both fluid management and renal replacement therapies play a fundamental role in the treatment of critically ill patients. In a recent in vitro study, we have shown specific interactions of different colloids and the hemocompatibility of hemofilters. The present study was performed to compare the five most common fluids for volume resuscitation, i.e., normal saline (SAL), hydroxyethyl starch 130 kd/0.4 (HES130), hydroxyethyl starch 200 kd/0.5 (HES200), albumin (ALB), and gelatin (GEL) with respect to their interaction with continuous venovenous hemofiltration (CVVH) in anesthetized domestic pigs. METHODS: Animals (n = 63) were allocated randomly to the fluid type and the respective subgroups, which were divided into control and CVVH groups (n = 6 ndash; 7 per group). Bolus infusion of group specific fluid was followed by a bolus of heparin and the initiation of hemofiltration in CVVH groups. Thereafter, fluids were infused at constant rates, and heparin application was adjusted to keep the activated clotting time at 200 to 250 s. Hemodynamics, airway pressures, pulmonary gas exchange, diuresis, creatinine clearance, and blood cell counts were investigated during the entire procedure (10 ndash; 12 hours). RESULTS: Basics of in vivo effects of SAL, HES130, and ALB were not altered during CVVH. HES130 and ALB enabled stable hemocompatibility, diuresis, and hemodynamics in the respective groups. In contrast, organ functions were significantly different between control and CVVH groups when animals were treated with GEL or HES200. In particular, during CVVH, HES200 led to reduced platelet counts, deteriorated hemodynamics, and increasing airway pressures during CVVH. GEL led to increasing airway pressures, a decrease in pulmonary gas exchange, deteriorated hemodynamics, altered renal histomorphology, reduced platelet counts, and reduced hemoglobin. CONCLUSIONS: Direct in vivo effects of colloids in anaesthetized and ventilated pigs are not predictable for their effects during CVVH. Interaction between CVVH and every volume substitute occur in a highly specific manner. This observation could be helpful to explain contradictory study results and should be considered for future study designs.
