Colloid infusion in the trauma patient

We NEVER use colloids in initial resuscitation, prehospital or otherwise. The literature clearly does not support colloid use.

Subject: Colloid infusion in the trauma patient

Hello trauma list 
Lately, I have been dealing with the teaching of fluid ressuscitation in trauma to EMT-B'S (not directly by teaching but by dealing with contents of the class and consulting with instructors) and the subject of the use of colloid solutions (under the doctor's order only. of course) came up, so I'd like t o here from those of you who have had expreince with this therapy (both in the pre-hospital and trauma-room settings) to share your knowledge and experience with me- what solutions did use? does any of you continue to practice this therapy? did you find it to have significant adventages over using soley cristalloids? How did you avoid or manage its complications and dangers? 
Looking forward to your respondes and wishing you a happy succot,
