The use of mannitol in HIV-infected patients with symptomatic cryptococcal meningitis. It is worth re-revaluating the role of mannitol administration as a symptom control strategy in mild cases of HIV-associated CM.

Unable to load your collection due to an error Brain water in animals treated with 8 g/kg mannitol plus 8 mg/kg furosemide did not differ from that seen with 8 g/kg mannitol alone.Mannitol increased plasma osmolality and reduced water content of the injured and contralateral hemispheres, whereas the authors observed no effect of furosemide when given either alone or in combination with mannitol.THE ability of mannitol to reduce intracranial pressure (ICP) is well established. They also thank JoAnne Schwarting (former Research Assistant II) and Philip Schmid, M.D. With the animal still prone, a 2.2-atm peak pressure pulse lasting 20–30 ms was delivered to the animal. Statistically significant reductions in MAP and pH (both The effects of hypertonic solutions on brain volume and ICP in animals were first described in the early part of the 20th century.The effects of furosemide on ICP were first reported in the late 1960s.Therapy with a combination of mannitol and furosemide was first described by Harbaugh The uncertainty raised by these studies, along with the clinical use of the combination of mannitol and furosemide, led to our earlier study.To further understand the action of these drugs, we extended our earlier study using animals that had been subjected to a fluid percussion brain injury.Some studies based on focal freezing injuries to the brain have suggested that increasing plasma osmolality does not remove water from injured brain.There are a number of limitations to this study.

The only study that examined the effect of furosemide on cerebral blood flow in normal animals was reported by Rovere and Scremin.Our results also need to be compared and contrasted with a recent publication by Mayzler In summary, these experiments demonstrated the expected dose-related effects of mannitol on plasma osmolality and brain water content in the injured as well as the contralateral hemisphere. COVID-19 is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation.
