  1. The table show volume of trial fluid according to intervention group and days after randomisation. The presentation differs from that of the primary publication of the 6S trial, but reflects exactly the same data.
  2. The P value is from Wilcoxon rank-sum test comparing the total trial fluid volume in all patients. IQR denotes interquartile range.
