- The coagulation changes induced by rapid in vivo crystalloid infusion are attenuated when magnesium is kept at the upper limit of normalThomas G Ruttmann
Department of Anaesthesiology, University of Cape Town Medical School, Cape Town, Republic of South Africa
Anesth Analg 104:1475-80, table of contents. 2007..Altered serum magnesium may play a role in the balance of coagulation. In this in vivo study we investigated the coagulation response to rapid hemodilution when serum magnesium is maintained or partially increased...
