Fluid Therapy for the Surgical Patient Ebook PDF download Fluid therapy for surgical and critically ill patients is considered a ubiquitous part of treatment. Since all interventions for our patients should be based on evidence and proven experience, you would expect fluid therapy to be based on firm and robust evidence. Unfortunately,
fluid therapy is a complex intervention and it can be difficult to test
single elements.

The overall aim of perioperative fluid management is to stabilize an
unstable patient and prevent further harm. The target of all treatment is
to provide a range of therapeutic interventions to heal the patient. It can
be very difficult to attribute single interventions to be responsible for one
major outcome. By providing fluids, one must maintain effective intra-
vascular volume, compensate for intraoperative volume losses, and pre-
vent intraoperative and postoperative complications of inadequate tissue
perfusion.

All surgical patients, ranging from those having minimally
invasive outpatient procedures to those having major intra-abdominal
or intrathoracic surgery, receive some quantity of fluid intraoperatively
and postoperatively. Historically, both the composition and quantity of
perioperative fluid management have generated controversy, for exam-
ple, crystalloids versus colloids, liberal versus restricted regimens, and
goal-directed versus more empirical approaches. Consequently, although
perioperative fluid therapy is generally considered necessary, specific
characteristics remain controversial. It is also important to not forget the
basics in physiology and pathophysiology.
