Description: A vital aspect of the successful management of a traumatically injured child involves appropriate fluid resuscitation and monitoring. Careful consideration should be given to the type of fluid, access needed and possible complications that may be encountered in these patents. While fluid boluses and management strategies for ongoing shock can be standardized in adults, weight‐based techniques are needed in children. This includes customization of a massive transfusion protocol. Appropriate, timely fluid resuscitation may also reduce the need for surgical intervention.
