Fluid Balance Study in Sick Neonates

2014-08-27 03:19:55 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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.

Description

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
