Effects of hypertonic (7%) saline on brain injury in experimental Escherichia coli meningitis

, : Effects of hypertonic (7%) saline on brain injury in experimental Escherichia coli meningitis. Journal of Korean Medical Science 20(5): 870-876

We sought to know whether hypertonic (7%) saline (HTS) attenuates brain injury by improving cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) and down-modulating acute inflammatory responses in experimental bacterial meningitis in the newborn piglet. Twenty-five newborn piglets were assorted into three groups: 6 in the control group (C), 10 in the meningitis group (M), and 9 in the meningitis with HTS infusion group (H).
