Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The fluid management of the pediatric surgical patient is a crucial aspect of surgical care. This article reviews the fundamental physiology of fluid replacement in children and highlights how standard formulas for fluid therapy can be modified to account for the rapidly changing physiology of the pediatric surgical patient. Novel approaches to fluid treatment of the surgical patient with oral rehydration formulas are discussed. Finally, guidelines for specific management of common pediatric surgical diseases are presented.
