Abstract

Optimal fluid therapy is a cornerstone in the care of the acutely ill patient. Complications occur with providing too much fluid or too little. By being able to determine the “just right” amount of fluid, outcomes are enhanced. Strategies to achieve optimization include the use of the Frank-Starling curve.
