The article by Berend et al.(1) in this issue of the Journal is the first in a series of review articles that consider approaches to the understanding and management of fluid, electrolyte, and acid-ba...
Fluid management is regarded as a cornerstone of successful perioperative care, but fluid prescription is not always treated that way. New insights and guidelines have become available very recently.
Pleth variability index (PVI), a noninvasive dynamic indicator of fluid responsiveness has been demonstrated to be useful in the management of the patients with goal directed fluid therapy under gener...
Antimicrobials are one of the most widely prescribed classes of therapeutic agents. Although adverse effects of antimicrobials are generally minimal and reversible, serious sequelae can sometimes rema...
Perioperative fluid management of the colorectal surgical patient has evolved significantly over the last five decades. Older notions espousing aggressive hydration have been shown to be associated wi...
Primary Aims In this study we want to show that the choice of a balanced type fluid solution for the perioperative fluid management of patients receiving cadaveric renal transplantation re...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether intraoperative fluid and sodium restriction decreases postoperative morbidity
Pleth Variability Index (PVI) seems to be an ideal parameter to guide fluid management: dynamic parameter and non-invasive. PVI could guide fluid management during surgery and optimization...
Hypothesis: Fluid management guided by LiDCO doesn´t increase cumulative fluid balance and shorten organ dysfunction compared to fluid management based on CVP and clinical judgment.
The purpose of the study is to compare non-obese patients (BMI≤ 30 kg/m2)versus obese patients (BMI> 30 kg/m2) in regard of their respective needs for intraoperative fluid therapy during...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
An element that is in the alkali group of metals. It has an atomic symbol K, atomic number 19, and atomic weight 39.10. It is the chief cation in the intracellular fluid of muscle and other cells. Potassium ion is a strong electrolyte and it plays a significant role in the regulation of fluid volume and maintenance of the water-electrolyte balance.
Translocation of body fluids from one compartment to another, such as from the vascular to the interstitial compartments. Fluid shifts are associated with profound changes in vascular permeability and WATER-ELECTROLYTE IMBALANCE. The shift can also be from the lower body to the upper body as in conditions of weightlessness.
The balance of fluid in the BODY FLUID COMPARTMENTS; total BODY WATER; BLOOD VOLUME; EXTRACELLULAR SPACE; INTRACELLULAR SPACE, etc., maintained by processes in the body that regulate the intake and excretion of WATER and ELECTROLYTES, particularly SODIUM and POTASSIUM.
Extracorporeal ultrafiltration technique without hemodialysis for treatment of fluid overload and electrolyte disturbances affecting renal, cardiac, or pulmonary function.
The administration of nutrients for assimilation and utilization by a patient by means other than normal eating. It does not include FLUID THERAPY which normalizes body fluids to restore WATER-ELECTROLYTE BALANCE.
