During the past 15 years, my colleagues and I have been applying true water balance principles, with a proper regard for sodium and acid-base balance, to all our seriously ill patients. We have done this in all departments, surgery, obstetrics, pediatrics and medicine, for the prevention or correction of oliguria or anuria and azotemia, and of dehydration and edema. We have found this practice to be of value in the prevention of serious renal complications in general. We believe that, particularly in cardiovascular-renal disease where such complications are so frequently encountered, it has reduced our morbidity and mortality.
