Description 

Fluid balance is often inaccurately assessed, measured and recorded. Under-and over-resuscitation with fluid for hypotensive or hypo-perfused patients can have a detrimental effect on overall patient outcomes. Questions remain about when to give fluid, the amount, the type and when to discontinue fluid. This webinar will focus on the science to support evidence-based decision-making on fluid resuscitation and de-resuscitation using clinical signs and symptoms and technology.

 

 

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

  1. Discuss the implications of fluid over and under resuscitation

  2. Analyze fluid management using evidence-based research to support  critical decision making at the bedside

Description

Fluid is not benign, and is a drug that must be dosed appropriately.  Fluid resuscitation requires administration of the right amount of volume to avoid overload. Static parameters such as heart rate, blood pressure, CVP and urine output do not predict fluid responsiveness. Technology exists to precisely assess a patient’s need for fluid and their potential ability to respond. 

 

Applying the evidence discussed previously, the second webinar will use case studies to demonstrate the application of stroke volume optimization to guide fluid management.

 

Learning Objectives

  1. Discuss the importance of nursing to drive practice change for fluid management 

  2. Demonstrate critical thinking of fluid management concepts through interactive polling using case-based scenarios to personalize care
