The purpose of this study is to determine if routinely recording fluid balance in sick neonates admitted to the pediatric ward is reliable and useful. The investigators' hypothesis is that it is not useful and reliable.
Fluid balance charts are commonly used, in the Netherlands, to assess patient fluid volume status. Some disadvantages of recording fluid intake and output are that it is time-consuming and complex. If it would give reliable and accurate information about the fluid volume status there would be a good reason for all this effort. In the few researches that have investigated this subject a low correlation has been found between the fluid balance and the weight changes of an adult patient. Own experience gives reasons to doubt about the reliability of the fluid balance in children, not rarely there is a discrepancy between the fluid balance and the weight measurement. We are interested in the relevance of recording fluid balance in neonates.

Previous studies have shown that a positive fluid balance was an independent factor of worse prognosis in ICU patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), and negative fluid b...
Hypernatremia is frequently encountered in patients admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and associated with increased mortality and length of stay. Previous studies focused on predic...
The purpose of the study is to determine if a protocol that assesses patients' daily fluid intake and output can decrease the overall amount of fluid patients receive during the first five...
The first objective of this study was to compare the traditional fluid management (TFM) with PVI guided goal-directed fluid management (GDFM) in terms of controlled intraoperative fluid vo...
Fluid overload is associated with increased mortality in adult patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome. In patients requiring venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VV-ECMO), the ef...
Both run and control charts can be used to answer the question "How will we know that a change is an improvement?". Run charts are advantageous at the start of an improvement effort, when little is kn...
In an emergency department (ED) sample, we investigated the concordance between identification of suicide-related visits through standardized comprehensive chart review versus a subset of three specif...
Acute kidney injury (AKI) requiring renal replacement therapy (RRT) is associated with high mortality. The creatinine-based stage of AKI is considered when deciding to start or delay RRT. However, cre...
This systematic review and meta-analysis was conducted to evaluate the mortality risk in severe sepsis and septic shock with a low and high fluid volume/balance.
Abnormal increase in RESPIRATORY RATE in the newborn. It is self-limiting and attributed to the delayed fetal lung fluid clearance often in CAESAREAN SECTION delivery.
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.
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.
The physician's inability to practice medicine with reasonable skill and safety to the patient due to the physician's disability. Common causes include alcohol and drug abuse, mental illness, physical disability, and senility.
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.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
