Abstract

Management of fluid therapy in an intensive care unit (ICU) tends to be volume restriction after initial fluid resuscitation, since it has been the consensus that volume overload is associated with complications and poor clinical outcomes. Aggressive volume administration without cautious monitoring should be avoided in the ICU, because it could lead to excessive volume administration. However, there are limited consensus on determining the completion of resuscitation phase, in other words, when to stop aggressive infusion and initiate infusion restriction.
