Dextran Inf is used for the treatment of hypovolemia which is a condition known as decreased volume of circulating blood plasma
How it Works
Dextran Inf is known as a plasma volume expander which is made from natural sources of sugar such as glucose. Dextran Inf works by restoring blood plasma lost through severe bleeding. Severe blood loss can decrease oxygen levels and can lead to organ failure, brain damage, coma, and possibly death. Plasma is needed to circulate red blood cells that deliver oxygen throughout the body, thus Dextran Inf works to allow this to happen.
