How much fluid will you give the patient during the first 8 hours? How about the next 16 hours? The patient weighs 70 kg.
You will use the parkland formula to figure this out. Fluid = 4 x KG x %TBSA. After obtaining your result, half is given in the first 8 hours and another half in the next 16 hours. You would give this patient roughly 8200cc during the first 8 hours and then another 8200cc during the next 16 hours.
