Ten normotensive premature infants with idiopathic respiratory distress syndrome, and albumin concentrations of less than 30 g/l were given 5 ml/kg of 20% salt poor albumin by infusion. Concentrations measured six hours after infusion had increased significantly and these were associated with significant reduction in weight and improvement in urine output.
