Pediatric Burn Resuscitation

  1. Take the time to estimate the TBSA involved. This will greatly influence the management!
  2. Initial fluid calculations for replacement (ex, using Parkland formula) should be ADDED to maintenance fluids.
  3. NEVER forget the sugar! You don’t need to add it to their resuscitation fluids, but their maintenance fluids need glucose.
  4. If the patient remains in your care for a prolonged period, don’t forget to monitor the glucose level.
