This review will discuss briefly the reactions to intravenously administered fluids in general, such as whole blood, plasma, human serum and crystalloid solutions. It will deal particularly with the question of reactions to plasma, since this material is now widely used and lately its rôle as an actual or potential source of reactions has been a controversial point.
The causes of reactions may be inherent in the fluid administered or may be conditions (physiological or pathological) peculiar to the recipient or to a combination of these two factors.
Some of the elements causing reactions, such as pyrogens, may be found
