Table 5 Fluid and pressor usage in the 4 groups of piglets following endotoxin administration.

From: Antithrombin III (AT) and recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (R-TPA) used singly and in combination versus supportive care for treatment of endotoxin-induced disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) in the neonatal pig

Group Fluid Volume (ml) Dopamine Dopamine + Dobutamine
A 107.8 ± 61.7 33% 33%
B 82.2 ± 34.6 100% 67%
C 83.7 ± 56.8 100% 50%
D 121.7 ± 66.8 100% 83%
* P -values 0.559 0.49 0.528
  1. Legend: Fluid volume is the mean of total volume given in resuscitative measure for that particular group ± the standard deviation. The use of Dopamine and Dobutamine is expressed as percentage of animals in each group that received pressors. *P-values reflect testing for differences across the groups (Fisher's Exact Test).
