Fluids are by far the most commonly administered intravenous treatment in patient care. During critical illness, fluids are widely administered to maintain or increase cardiac output, thereby relieving overt tissue hypoperfusion and hypoxia. Still, there is huge variability in fluid administration amongst health care providers.
Organised by the Cardiovascular Dynamics (CD) ESICM Section, this webinar will discuss the latest updates in fluid administration.
- Understand why and when it is important to predict fluid responsiveness.
- Know the place and limits of the new fluid responsiveness indices/tests.
- Differentiate between adaptive response to sepsis vs therapeutic target.
- Understand the updated SSC guidelines on fluid volumes and the conceptual challenge to the recommendations.
- Interpret the evidence for lower vs higher fluid volume.
- A simplified approach to IV fluid therapy in septic shock.
