This study will investigate how we can help treat patients suffering from shock by the targeted use of specific fluids and medications. Shock is an acute medical condition in which the organs and tissues of the body are not receiving an adequate flow of blood. It is associated with a fall in blood pressure, a build-up in waste products and can result in serious organ damage and even death. We hope to improve our ability to treat shock by evaluating fluid management from the blood samples of a group of healthy volunteers.
