Parkland Formula for Burn Fluid Management
Remember that this fluid management formula is only a guideline. Furthermore, this fluid regimen does not include normal maintenance fluids. Fluid management must be individualized. Additional parameters for fluid management include urine output & systemic blood pressure.
The 24 hour formula is
fluids for 24 hours = (4 х kg х %burn) [2nd & 3rd added together]
with 1st 50% of that total in the first 8 hours and the 2nd 50% over the following 16 hours.
