One of the great advances in burn care, developing a strategy for treating burn shock resuscitation, occurred in the 1960s and 1970s. Before this period, most people with extensive burns ( 30% TBSA) would simply die within hours or, if they survived, would suffer from renal failure. Currently, burn shock resuscitation has become an afterthought that is relegated to residents and nursing staff. Calculations are performed based on protocols, and it is known that fluid rate titration should be… 
Early Management of Burn Patients and Fluid Resuscitation
TLDR
This chapter covers the pathophysiology of burn shock, which results from a massive capillary leak that involves alterations in the junctions between vascular endothelial cells, and the management of resuscitation complications such as compartment syndrome.
Factors affecting fluid resuscitation in the burn patient: the collaborative role of the APN.
TLDR
The advanced practice nurse can play a vital role in implementing strategies to ensure optimal resuscitation in the burn patient and be diligent in providing significant education, essential tools, and assistance to the staff nurses in an effort to promote best-practice and evidence-based care.

TLDR
There are insufficient data to support a treatment standard treatment at this time, and the addition of colloid-containing fluid following burn injury, especially after the first 12 to 24 hours postburn, may decrease overall fluid requirements.
Critical care of the burn patient: The first 48 hours
TLDR
The critically burned patient differs from other critically ill patients in many ways, the most important being the necessity of a team approach to patient care.
State of the Art: An Update on Adult Burn Resuscitation
TLDR
An update on fluid resuscitation techniques in burn patients is provided, to include choosing the initial fluid infusion rate, using alternate endpoints of resuscitation, and responding to the difficult resuscitation.

TLDR
Recent reports emphasize the dangers of over resuscitation in the setting of burn injury, and the value of the burn center in care of soft tissue problems including Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis and soft tissue infections is supported in recent papers.

TLDR
Improved statistics are derived from experience in burn centers, where there is substantial knowledge of the pathophysiology of burn injury and inadequate volume replacement in major burns is, unfortunately, common when clinicians lack sufficient knowledge in this area.
Gastrointestinal Fluid Resuscitation of Thermally Injured Patients
Abstract : A seminal advance in the care of thermally injured patients was the recognition of the large volumes of fluid required during resuscitation and the relationship of these volumes to burn
Burns: military options and tactical solutions.
TLDR
Data is presented from recent experiments of gastric and intestinal infusions of an oral rehydration solution in a porcine burn model that demonstrates restoration of plasma volumes and improvement in hemodynamic parameters associated with significant gastric emptying and intestinal absorption.
Exchange transfusion therapy in pediatric burn shock.
TLDR
A therapeutic response was documented in all patients, characterized by a sharp decrease in fluid requirements from a mean of 332% of the predicted hourly volume to calculated requirements by 2.9 hr following exchange.
Plasma exchange therapy in patients failing to resuscitate from burn shock.
TLDR
It is concluded that plasma exchange facilitates resuscitation from burn shock in a select group of patients who do not respond to conventional volume therapy.
