CLASSIC For Patients

Comparing two approaches of fluid treatment for blood poisoning shock; a restrictive approach (less fluid) and common practice (more fluid).

Blood poisoning shock (septic shock) is characterized by failure of the circulation and vital organs. Intravenous fluid treatment (fluid given in a drip) to improve the circulation is a frequent treatment in blood poisoning shock, but there is sparse knowledge about the optimal amount of fluid.
