First paragraph (this article has no abstract)
In their interesting observational study Smith and Perner  describe fluid resuscitation (FR) in 164 patients with septic shock, concluding that survival was better in patients receiving higher volumes over the first 72 h. I think we should be cautious, however, to conclude from this that more is better.
