The original article was published in Critical Care 2007 11:R17

It has been brought to our attention that the seventh sentence from paragraph two of Recommendation 17 in our research article [1], published in February 2007, is incorrect.

"A clinical trial with brain injury patients found that hypertonic saline reduces intracranial pressure more effectively than dextran solution with 20% mannitol"

This should read:

"A clinical trial with brain injury patients found that hypertonic saline with dextran reduces intracranial pressure more effectively than 20% mannitol solution when compared in equimolar dosing"
