Proctor KG: Hypertonic resuscitation: Is it all in the timing? Crit Care Med 2008; 36:2692–2693

In the article on page 2692, there were several errors that contained author names.

On page 2692, the last sentence that begins in the second column, it should have stated:

Junger and associates were among the first to show that hypertonic saline can suppress neutrophil activation via adenosine A2A receptors or enhance neutrophil function via adenosine A3 receptors. In this current study, Inoue et al. use three different protocols to investigate how A3 receptors can alter responses evoked by hypertonic saline (15).

And on page 2693, the following paragraph should have stated:

In summary, in a previous study (13), Junger and associates concluded that early hypertonic solutions may prevent neutrophill activation most effectively when patients are treated early; this current study (15) provides a mechanistic explanation for that finding. However, the practical significance of the connection between adenosine and hypertonic saline awaits further study.

The Journal regrets this error.
