Description

This session outlines the physiological response to hypovolaemia, and the strategies used to replace fluid losses with appropriate intravenous fluids and blood products. It also compares the differences in the physiological responses to acute hypovolaemia from haemorrhage with those of fluid loss from causes such as gastro intestinal (GI) loss, noting that the timescale of loss and replacement is longer for these compartments.

Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Describe what happens when blood and fluids are lost from body compartments
• Identify the physiological responses and relate these to age
• Recognize that blood pressure (BP) is maintained for longer in young fit adults
• Describe the different IV fluids available and which fluids should be used to replace different losses
