Abstract

Pneumonia is characterized by local clotting, which is comparable to blood clotting with severe septicaemia. It has been recently demonstrated that the use of hemodiluting agents with severe septicaemia improves survival. In this study it will be examined whether these agents have also a favourable action with pneumonia.

Abstract (NL)

Longontsteking kenmerkt zich door lokale stolselvorming, vergelijkbaar met stolselvorming in het bloed bij ernstige bloedvergiftiging. Recent is aangetoond dat het gebruik van bloedverdunners bij ernstige bloedvergiftiging de overleving verbetert. De onderzoekers gaan bepalen of bloedverdunners ook gunstig werken bij longontsteking.
