Reexamining traditional intraoperative fluid administration: evolving views in the age of goal-directed therapy.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Intraoperative volume administration has long been a topic of debate in the field of anesthesia. Only recently, however, has the conversation shifted to a discussion of appropriate intraoperative volume. A thorough review of the literature explores the history of today's widely accepted fluid administration equation and discusses possible explanations and consequences of iatrogenically induced hypervolemia. Current studies exploring various volume administration techniques are reviewed, as are emerging technologies available to help guide anesthesia providers with intraoperative fluid management.
