Single Center, double-blinded, randomized trial.
Patients with cancer and septic shock
4% albumin + lactate ringer bolus in 10 minutes
Lactate ringer bolus in 10 minutes
Primary: Any mortality within 7 days of randomization.
Secondary: Mortality within 28 days, renal replacement therapy (RRT)
7-day mortality: 46 (25%) for LR + albumin vs. 40 (22%) for LR only
28-day mortality: 96 (53%) for LR + albumin vs. 83 (46%) for LR only
RRT: 16 (9%) for LR + albumin vs. 12 (7) for LR only
Adding albumin for early resuscitation to crystalloids did not improve mortality in cancer patients with septic shock.
