Every patient has unique and constantly changing hemodynamic needs
Clinicians have always known that giving too little, or too much fluid will increase the risk of patient complications. However, today there is growing clinical evidence that this is even more important than has been previously appreciated.
Recent large studies in sepsis and in surgical patients continue to highlight the importance of better fluid management. These studies have prompted professional groups, payers and government organizations to encourage heightened scrutiny of fluid management practices as part of an overall strategy for improving patient care. Evolving literature in renal failure and ARDS continues to emphasize the importance of getting fluid right.
