There’s no room for error when you’re giving fluid to a rapidly decompensating septic kid. 20 ml/kg? How do you give it? Critical care and emergency nurses need to know the best practices of fluid resuscitation for kids. This presentation will empower you with the most up-to-date evidence, the best practices, and the answers to the most common questions about administering fluid. You will walk away knowing that the next time you see that sick kid, you will know how much fluid to give, in what time, what your administration options are, and how you know if it's working or not. Plus, you will be able to better advocate for your patients and deliver this important life-saving intervention in the safest way possible.
