Abstract

Current guidelines outlining the resuscitation of severely burned patients, in the United States, were developed over 30 years ago. Unfortunately, clinical burn resuscitation has not advanced significantly since that time despite ongoing research efforts. Many formulas exist and have been developed with the intention of providing appropriate, more precise fluid resuscitation with decreased morbidity as compared to the current standards, such as the Parkland and modified Brooke formulas. The aim of this review was to outline the evolution of burn resuscitation, while closely analyzing current worldwide guidelines, adjuncts to resuscitation, as well as addressing future goals.
