Abstract

Rapid administration of solution containing dextroae results in marked hyperglycemia and osmotic diuresis hut a balanced electrolyte solution containing maltese does not increase blood sugar. 30 patients were chosen at random and divided into 3 groups j.e, one group received 5% dextrose in water, the second group received Hartmann solution and the third group, 5% maltose in a balanced electrolyte solution. The Patient's blood was collected in the operating room prior to the start l.V. infusion, for the measurement of blood sugar, insulin, osmolarity and electrolrtes in various conditions of N.P.O. Intravenous fluid was administered at a rate of 10 m1/kg/hour while anesthesia was induced and maintained with an endotracheal tube in place. Blood samples were taken one hour. 2 hours and 3 7ours f:on the time 1,V. infusion started, In the of 5% dextrose in water groups, the value of blood sugar and insulin was 88.5+/-12.1 mg% and 14.60+/-7.67 un/ml at NPO, 257.7+/-60.8mg% and 70.75+/-37.55 un/m1 at 1 hour, 298.8+/-84.4mg%: and 143.19+/-50.32 un/ml at 2 hours and 228.6+/-75.8% and 127.71+/-56.98 un/m1 at 3 hours. Although the b1ood sugar and insulin values increased markedly. but potassium and chloride were 4.74+/-0.55 mEq/l and 101.1+/-2.9 mEq/l and 4.11+/-0.31 mEq/l, 107.4+/-2.3 mEq/l and 3.75+/-0.41 mEq/l, 176.4+/-2.7mEq/l and 3.89+/-0.50mEq/l, 106.3+/-2.2 mEq/l and shoewed mild decrease, by the way, osmolarity and serum sodium did not changed. In contrast to the 5% dextrose in water groups, there are no changes in the blood glucose. insulin levels, osmolarity or and electrolrtes in the either Hartmann or Elitol (Elitol=5% maltose contained in a balanced electrolyte solution) groups. There was a slight increase in osmolarity with maltose but it was not significant. Accordingly it is concluded that rapid infusion of harmann or 5% maltose contained ina balanced electrolyte solution affects the blood sugar and insulin levels insignificantly compared to the dextrose cont5aining solution which increase the blood sugar and indulin levels markedly.
