Evidence and Controversies in Pre-hospital Fluid Resuscitation – What You Need to Know About Pediatric and Adult Fluid Administration

The optimal approach for and the importance of fluid management in shock has been heavily discussed and debated in the last 10-20 years. A study published by Rivers et al in 2001 was one of the first to demonstrate the benefit of early and rapid fluids in septic shock patients and the concept of early, aggressive fluids has proven benefits in multiple studies since then and worked its way into sepsis protocols for hospitals and EMS groups. Over the same period there have been a number of other studies that have questioned the conclusions of Rivers and similar studies. The purpose of this webcast is to review the current literature and studies and provide a summary of the current understanding of the optimal approach and situations for rapid fluid resuscitation in shock patients.
