Table 2 Average total inotrope infusion and fluid replacement during 48 h after HI

From: Systemic pro-inflammatory cytokine status following therapeutic hypothermia in a piglet hypoxia-ischemia model

Group Mean (SD) use (mg/kg) Median use (mg/kg) Interquartile range (mg/kg)
Normothermia
 Dopamine 0 (0) 0 0
 Saline bolus 0 0 0
Hypothermia
 Dopamine 9.70 (9.91) 8.3 12.86
 Saline bolus 0 0 0
  1. Median (IQR) values for inotrope infusion and saline bolus are presented for both groups. Mann-Whitney statistical assessment demonstrated no significant difference between normothermia and hypothermia groups for inotrope use and fluid replacement
