Several reports have documented that modern burn patients receive far more resuscitation fluid than predicted by the Parkland formula-a phenomenon termed "fluid creep. [...] Key Method A literature review was performed of historical references that form the foundation of modern fluid resuscitation, as well as reports of fluid creep and its consequences. The original Parkland formula required a 24-hour volume of 4 ml/kg/%TBSA lactated Ringer's solution followed by an infusion of 0.3-0.5 ml/kg/ %TBSA plasma…Expand

ConditionsBurns, Shock
Acute burn resuscitation and fluid creep: it is time for colloid rehabilitation.
TLDR
A comprehensive review of literature about fluid creep is conducted, trying to determine the etiology behind it as well as to propose strategies to control its magnitude and complications, namely through colloid administration amongst other options. Expand
Review of a Fluid Resuscitation Protocol: “Fluid Creep” Is Not Due to Nursing Error
TLDR
Fuid creep exhibited by more seriously injured patients was not due to nurses' failure to follow the protocol, and some opportunities for practice improvement were illuminated using a computerized decision support system. Expand
Resuscitation in Extensive Burn in Pediatrics and Fluid Creep: an Update
TLDR
Some centers have demonstrated that selection of more strict protocols of fluid resuscitation, rigorous diuresis control, moderate use of opioids, and early and regular use of albumin are correlated to positive outcomes and thus may attenuate the urgence of fluid creep. Expand
Colloid Administration Normalizes Resuscitation Ratio and Ameliorates “Fluid Creep”
TLDR
The addition of colloid to Parkland resuscitation rapidly reduces hourly fluid requirements, restores normal resuscitation ratios, and ameliorates fluid creep. Expand
Resuscitation in major burns: The problem of fluid creep
TLDR
An 8-year-old boy with 52% fullthickness burns, who developed abdominal and limb compartment syndromes during the period of resuscitation, recently died. Expand
Burn State of the Science: Fluid Resuscitation.
TLDR
An RCT is urgently required to evaluate high-dose vitamin C as an adjunct to crystalloid resuscitation compared with the use of crystalloids alone, and an RCT comparing Computerized Decision Support Systems with conventional titration approaches will be the important next step. Expand
Fluid volumes infused during burn resuscitation 1980-2015: A quantitative review.
TLDR
It is suggested that burn units currently administer volumes larger than Parkland formula with great patient variability, and individual patient hourly data is needed to better understand the record of burn resuscitation and Fluid Creep. Expand
Fluid Restriction for Treatment of “Fluid Creep” after Acute Burn Resuscitation
TLDR
Stricter fluid administration after acute burn fluid resuscitation is advised for allowing patients to reduce body weight to their pre-injury weight or at least close to it. Expand
Adoption of rescue colloid during burn resuscitation decreases fluid administered and restores end-organ perfusion.
TLDR
Rescue albumin administration decreases the amount of fluid administered per %TBSA during resuscitation, and also increases end organ function as evidenced by increased urinary output in patients who sustained larger burns and failed to respond to traditional crystalloid resuscitation. Expand
A Review of the Use of Human Albumin in Burn Patients
  • R. Cartotto, J. Callum
  • Medicine
  • Journal of burn care & research : official publication of the American Burn Association
  • 2012
TLDR
Human studies suggest that immediate use of ALB during acute resuscitation achieves adequate resuscitation using a lower total overall volume requirement, transiently provides better maintenance of intravascular volume and cardiac output, produces less overall edema gain than crystalloid resuscitation alone but may be associated with increased extravascular lung water accumulation during the first postburn week.

Is supra-Baxter resuscitation in burn patients a new phenomenon?
TLDR
The data demonstrate that the "fluid creep" phenomenon is relatively new and has the potential for significant consequences including abdominal and extremity compartment syndromes and severe pulmonary insults. Expand
How well does the Parkland formula estimate actual fluid resuscitation volumes?
TLDR
The findings reveal that despite its effectiveness, the Parkland Formula underestimated the volume requirements in most adults with isolated cutaneous burns, and especially in those with large full thickness burns. Expand
Burn shock resuscitation
  • G. Warden
  • Medicine
  • World Journal of Surgery
  • 2005
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. Expand
The comparison of early fluid therapy in extensive flame burns between inhalation and noninhalation injuries.
TLDR
This study showed less fluid requirement for both inhalation and noninhalation injured patients in comparison with the Navar study and Parkland predictions in the first 24 h postburn, which definitely required volumes of fluid in excess of those required in nonin inhalation injured cases. Expand
A prospective, randomized evaluation of intra-abdominal pressures with crystalloid and colloid resuscitation in burn patients.
TLDR
Plasma-resuscitated patients maintained an IAP below the threshold of complications of intra-abdominal hypertension in burn patients, appears to be a direct result of the decrease in volume required. Expand
"Opioid creep" is real and may be the cause of "fluid creep".
TLDR
There is a significant increase from the 1970s to 2000 in the type, dose prescribed and dose delivered of opioid agonists or "opioid creep", which may contribute to the increased fluid volumes. Expand
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. Expand
Fluid requirements of patients with burns and inhalation injuries in an intensive care unit
TLDR
It is suggested that the observed difference is due to a combination of the presence of an inhalation injury which increases fluid requirements by approximately 30% in the first 24 h and the use of plasma protein fraction rather than the dried plasma used in the original Muir and Barclay formula. Expand
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. Expand
Lactate: early predictor of morbidity and mortality in patients with severe burns.
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that the initial lactate level (Day 0) is a useful parameter to separate survivors from non-survivors, and measuring lactate and lactate clearance may help to detect critically injured patients either for adequacy of treatment, or selection of other therapeutic options.
