Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
Subjects were enrolled by Emergency Medicine Services (EMS) personnel in the pre-hospital setting based on pre-defined inclusion/exclusion criteria. The first subject was enrolled on May 9, 2006 and the last subject was enrolled on August 25, 2008.

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
895 subjects were randomized. 852 subjects completed the study. Randomization was performed when the outer study fluid bag wrapper was removed in the presence of a patient. To ensure there was no bias, a secondary intention to treat analysis was also performed which included all randomized patients even if the fluid was not administered.

  Serious Adverse Events


  Other Adverse Events


  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
The trial was stopped early for futility in the presence of a potential safety concern regarding increased mortality among patients receiving hypertonic solutions and no blood transfusions. This was no longer evident 6 hr after hospital admission.
