abstract

  • Early recognition of hemodynamic instability in the pediatric patient, followed by prompt intervention, is the key to successful resuscitation. Fluid management for patients in shock must be adjusted according to the patient's age and size and the pathophysiology of the underlying condition. The identification, evaluation, and fluid therapy for children presenting with shock are reviewed.
