At the present time, as glucose solutions are used intravenously in certain diseases, particularly in pneumonia, the effect produced on the vascular mechanism is of paramount interest.
A review of the literature on the subject of blood volume changes following intravenous injections of hypertonic glucose solutions shows that the majority of investigators demonstrated an increase in the volume12456. Two writers state that there is no change in the blood volume following glucose injections37. Such investigations have been chiefly on animals. The conclusions were based on comparatively few observations, and these were not uniform.
Twenty-six relative blood volume determinations were made8.
