Abstract

The strategies underlying fluid resuscitation of burn victims continue to evolve. The physiologic responses to acute burn injury and the mechanisms of those physiologic responses have been better elucidated. Based on this information, increasingly precise fluid therapy can be provided in the early and later phases of burn wound management. Current concepts of fluid management of burned patients are discussed in the context of acute and ongoing fluid losses resulting from thermal injury.
