HES (tetrastarches)- Can we use it at all?

Hi Andy, 

I meant to comment after the link - Anyway my comments from the article are:

HES is now licensed only for restricted use. Any condition where we might consider using it would potentially be one which would lead to our patient being critically ill as a consequence of trauma or prolonged surgery - or even put our patient at risk of kidney injury or coagulopathy as a consequence of the primary pathology itself. 

So, it seems like the conditions where we can use it would be very few and far between and it may not be worth stocking it at all.

I look forward to the views of others on this.
