Abstract

Background: In hypertonic dehydration, fluid loss is known to be from the intracellular compartment. Also fluid loss in vascular bed increases the osmotic pressure and results with decrease of fluid flow to these compartments. We applied hypertonic dehydration by fluid restriction to evaluate the effects of dehydration on posttraumatic brain edema and swelling.
