Intravenous news: News Medical report “Ian Roberts, Professor of Epidemiology & Public Health at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine is interviewed on the type of intravenous fluids used in the National Health Service (NHS) “What are starch-based colloid fluids and how do they differ from saline-based crystalloid fluids? Saline is just salty water, whereas colloids are solutions that have large molecules in them. In this case, the molecules are starch. The idea is that because these molecules are big they don’t leak out of the circulation as much. Because they stay inside the circulation it expands the intravascular volume more than salty water.”
