Wording Errors in the Text

JAMA. 2015;314(23):2570. doi:10.1001/jama.2015.15495

In the Original Investigation entitled “Effect of a Buffered Crystalloid Solution vs Saline on Acute Kidney Injury Among Patients in the Intensive Care Unit: The SPLIT Randomized Clinical Trial” published in the October 27, 2015, issue of JAMA,1 the third sentence of the first paragraph in the Study Randomization and Treatment section should read, “Additional considerations were that Hartmann solution contains calcium and is therefore incompatible with blood products preserved in citrate-based anticoagulation solutions….” Also, the fifth sentence of the second paragraph in the Discussion section should read, “A retrospective study of patients undergoing major abdominal surgery that used multivariate logical regression and a propensity score reported that saline was associated with a significant increase in major postoperative complications compared with buffered crystalloid solutions.” This article was corrected online.
