Fluid therapy is a type of pharmacotherapy. This introductory guide is intended to teach healthcare staff, including medical interns, nurses, pharmacists, and nutritionists, the basics about infusions and electrolytes. Conversations between medical residents and attending physicians illustrate approaches to specific infusions and actual amounts administered. Typical cases are presented through situations that can be readily related to clinical practice in a format that clearly explains cases requiring infusions as well as various precautions. Special tips and advice are provided throughout, offering practical guidance for those who find infusions challenging so that they can perform them independently. This revised second edition adds up-to-date information and improves sections that readers have found difficult, providing a more thorough and approachable read.
