Answer

Fluids

Extravascular pooling of fluids through damaged endothelium leads to vascular hypovolemia and hypotension. Patients require fluid resuscitation with normal saline or lactated ringer.

Lactated Ringer solution

Lactated Ringer solution is essentially isotonic and has volume-restorative properties.
