## What is the formula for fluid replacement?

The formula Total % of burn surface area x body weight in kilograms = volume in millilitres of fluid to be given in each period.

**What is the formula for calculating Evans?**

Evans formula: normal saline at 1 ml/kg/% TBSA burn ” colloid at 1 ml/kg/% TBSA burn. For second 24 hours, give half of the first 24-hour requirements ” D5W (dextrose 5% in water) 2000 ml.

**How is Galveston formula calculated?**

The Galveston formula provides 5000 ml/m2 BSA burn as a resuscitation fluid and 2000 ml/m2 total BSA as a maintenance fluid. As with the previously described adult formulas, half is given over the first 8 h and the remainder is given over the next 16 h.

### What is Parkland formula used for?

The Parkland formula is used to calculate fluid resuscitation for critical burn patients.

**What is the Evans method?**

The Evans method is a technique for calculating the number of unpaired electrons in solution-state metal complexes. Many transition metal complexes have unpaired electrons, making them attracted to magnetic fields. These complexes are called paramagnetic. Complexes with all paired electrons are called diamagnetic.

**What is BSA in Parkland formula?**

The first step in addressing the fluid needs for a burn patient is to determine the extent of the injury, which is by calculating the percentage of body surface area (%BSA) injured.

## Why RL is used in burns?

Hartmann’s (or Lactated Ringer’s) solution is the preferred first-line fluid recommended by the British Burns Association. Its composition and osmolality closely resemble normal bodily physiological fluids and it also contains lactate which may buffer metabolic acidosis in the early post- burn phase.

**When do you use Parkland formula?**

This formula is used specifically for patients who have sustained large deep partial thickness or full-thickness burns of greater than 20% of their total body surface area in adults, and greater than 10% total body surface area in children and the elderly.

**How is Wallace rule of nine calculated?**

The BSAs assigned to each body part refer to the entire body part. So, for example, if half of a patient’s left leg were burned, it would be assigned a BSA value of 9% (half the total surface area of the leg)….Wallace rule of nines.

Body Part | Adults | Children |
---|---|---|

Entire left leg | 18% | 14% |

Entire right leg | 18% | 14% |

### How do you calculate fluid loss?

To calculate the patient’s fluid deficit, the veterinarian will multiply the patient’s body weight (lb) by the percent dehydration as a decimal and then multiply it by 500.

**What is the consensus formula for burns?**

a. Consensus formula: 2-4 mL Ringers Lactate x weight in kg x % TBSA= mLs in first 24 hours. Give half of this total in the first 8 hours post burn.

**When do you use Baxter formula?**

The widely quoted Baxter (Parkland) formula for initial fluid resuscitation of burn victims is 4 mL of Ringer’s lactate per kilogram of body weight per %TBSA burned, one half to be given during the first 8 hours after injury and the rest in the next 16 hours.

## What is Evans method NMR?

The Evans method uses difference in the NMR chemical shift in a solvent caused by the presence of a paramagnetic species. It can be used to determine the magnetic moment of the paramagnetic and the number of unpaired electrons present.

**How does an Evans balance work?**

The Evans balance has the same basic configuration as found in the Guoy method. The sample is suspended between two poles of a magnet. The balance measures the apparent change in the mass of the sample. The sample is repelled or attracted to the magnetic field for diamagnetic and paramagnetic substances, respectively.

**How do you use the Lund and Browder method?**

For children and infants, the Lund-Browder chart is used to assess the burned body surface area. Different percentages are used because the ratio of the combined surface area of the head and neck to the surface area of the limbs is typically larger in children than that of an adult.

### How do you calculate fluid loss in nursing?

Fluid deficit = Pre-illness weight – Illness weight. % Dehydration = (Pre-illness weight – Illness weight)/Illness weight × 100%. Once the fluid deficit is calculated, subtract any fluid bolus before determining the hourly rate.
