Estimation of fluid status changes in critically ill patients: fluid balance chart or electronic bed weight?

Abstract

PURPOSE Monitoring of fluid balance (FB) can be achieved by subtracting recorded fluid output from input or by measuring changes in body weight (BW). The latter approach is difficult in the critically ill. Recently, hospital beds have become available with the ability to directly weigh patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) patients directly. We sought… (More)
