ANALYSIS OF FLUID RESUSCITATION IN TRAUMA

Dr Rabia Humayun, Dr Summiaya Ehsan, Dr Ammad Ishtiaq

In the United States, trauma is the leading cause of death for persons between the ages of 1 and 44 years and the fifth leading cause of death overall. Globally, over 5 million people die of injuries each year, accounting for 9% of the world’s deaths. The main objective of the study is to analyse the fluid resuscitation in trauma patients. This review analysis was conducted in Central Park Medical College during June 2019 to December 2019. Critics of aggressive fluid resuscitation cite the abovementioned complications, while those skeptic of hypotensive resuscitation are concerned with the potential harmful effects of decreased oxygen delivery to the various tissues of the body, which could result in inadequate perfusion and subsequent organ failure. Fluids are drugs and should be managed as such. Appropriate early fluid resuscitation in trauma patients is a challenging task. Care should be taken in selecting both the type and volume to promote appropriate perfusion and oxygen delivery, avoiding the adverse effects seen when giving too little or too much.
