We measured serum colloid oncotic pressure(COP) in ll3 children in good physical state (ASA class 1), admitted to Seoul National University Children's Hospital for elective operations. After adequate NPO time for each age group, they were transferred to the operating room. Immediately after induction of anesthesia, we sampled 4 to 5 ml of blood from femoral artery and measured serum COP. The mean COP was 20.4+/-2.2 mmHg. No significant difference were found between male and female. Compared with Previous Kims report, COP in children under 12 years old was lower than that of adults, The younger the children are, the lower the COPs are(Key Words: COP, normal children, Korea).
