Summary

Effective fluid management is a cornerstone of paediatric care, given the unique physiological differences and vulnerabilities of this population compared to adults. Inaccurate fluid administration can lead to significant morbidity, including electrolyte imbalances, cerebral edema, and dehydration. The consequences of these errors underscore the need for a robust understanding of paediatric fluid requirements and management strategies among medical practitioners.

Learning objectives

Determine Fluid Requirements: By the end of this session, participants should be competent in assessing the fluid needs of paediatric patients based on their age, weight, clinical condition, and specific scenarios (e.g., post-operative status). Formulate and Implement Resuscitation Strategies: Attendees will demonstrate proficiency in designing and executing appropriate fluid resuscitation strategies for paediatric patients presenting with varying degrees of dehydration or fluid imbalance. Monitor and Adjust Treatment: Participants should be adept at continuously monitoring paediatric patients receiving fluid therapy, recognizing early signs of overhydration or underhydration, and making necessary adjustments in fluid administration. Collaborate Effectively: Learners will exhibit competence in working with multidisciplinary teams, including nursing staff, to ensure safe and effective fluid administration, especially in critical care or post-operative settings. Evaluate and Respond to Complications: By the end of this teaching session, attendees should be proficient in promptly identifying potential complications arising from fluid mismanagement, such as electrolyte imbalances or fluid overload, and initiating immediate corrective measures.
