I was at clinical this week and my client had a low urine output from the previous 8 hour shift (100ml/ 8hrs). I heard the nurses report and pentaspan was mentioned. I didn't ask at the time because I didn't want to sound dumb, but what the heck does pentaspan actually do? I'm pretty sure it increases urine output, but having a hard time researching this drug and figuring out exactly what it does, and how it works on the body. Can anyone explain? ## The information available on it is very limited and it really hasn't been shown to have any benefit over other choices, but you can find some details under Pentastarch. Learn more Pentastarch details here. Is there anything else I can help with?
