The Hypovolemic State: Chapter 14 Part 2

By Channel Your Enthusiasm - Last Updated: April 18, 2024

As the Burton Rose Book Club discusses chapter 14 of Dr. Rose’s influential book, The Clinical Physiology of Acid-Base and Electrolyte Disorders, they focus on the treatment of hypovolemic states, specifically the oral and IV treatment options that can be used for volume replacement.

Oral therapy can usually be done through increased water and dietary sodium, which may include salt tablets and/or adding glucose to resuscitation fluids. The IV therapy options for hypovolemia are more varied depending on the fluid needed, and the group dives into case studies about the effectiveness of different therapies, the rate of replacement, and addressing hypovolemic shock.
