There was abnormally large postural shift of intravascular fluid into the extravascular compartment.
Only one non-pregnant case was reported.5 Physiopathology can be explained by progesterone-mediated smooth muscle relaxation, increased cardiac output and intravascular fluid volume, increased venous return from lower extremities and compression of veins due to growing uterus.2
Patients with increased intracranial pressure are often treated with colloids because they move fluid from swollen brain cells into the intravascular spaces and do not add a significant amount of extra intravascular fluid. Patients with congestive heart failure are also good candidates for colloid therapy when intravascular expansion is needed, but additional fluid volume could worsen the patient's symptoms.
