    Managment of Fluid Balance = Up to date and accurate!!

    Administration of IV fluids = ditto well almost, Ensure that it is given in a timely manner that it follows the same "rights" as medication administration and observe for side effects i.e. fluid overload transfusion reactions and the new one Acute Lung Injury Sydrome (trot THAT one out and they will be impressed)

    For websites to help check the websites "sticky" thread in this forum
