What this trial shows: The investigators found no significant differences in the primary outcomes (correction of shock and acidosis in the blood 8 h after fluids were started) or in death rates between children given Gelofusine and those given albumin. The researchers then combined the data on death rates from this trial with data from two other trials with an albumin arm. This combined analysis suggested that death rates with albumin were lower than with other fluids, either Gelofusine or salt solution.
