Description: Each year more than 45,000 Americans are admitted to the hospital with a burn injury. Of these patients admitted, children under 5 account for 17% of the cases. Fluid choice and amount is essential when considering resuscitation techniques in pediatric patients. Fluid resuscitation is based on dry weight and patient response; burn care is not "one size fits all", and should be individualized. Specialized care of these patients begins in the pre hospital setting, and care within the first hours can impact overall outcomes for the burn patient.
