When Rebound effect is the problem, HYPERTONIC LACTATE resuscitates and energizes
WATCH: THE USE OF TOTILAC IN NEUROTRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY
Totilac (Hypertonic Lactate) is an innovator drug in its class and was granted an EU patent in 2006. Based on clinical studies, the Hyperosmolar lactate of Totilac is more effective than mannitol in achieving a prolonged decrease in intracranial pressure during an acute episode of intracranial hypertension.1 Totilac also offers two benefits in one drug. It resuscitates (hypertonic) and energizes, involving a high content of lactate, which is the preferred fuel of the brain. Thus, when the rebound effect is the problem, Totilac (Hypertonic Lactate) resuscitates and energizes. In patients with a cardiac problem, the product is verified to increase the cardiac index, shorten hospital stay, and reduce the use of inotropic during intra and post-CABG surgery. However, precaution must be given for Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) patients as Totilac may further induce congestion due to its sodium content.
Totilac in the Philippine market
