FERNANDEZ PELAEZ, Frank; BEATO CANFUX, Abraham Ismael; GONZALEZ PLANAS, Gema  and  BREFF FROMETA, Alaín. Hydric resuscitation of the adult burn patient. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2007, vol.36, n.4. ISSN 0138-6557.

A review of the theoretical foundations of hydration in the patient injured by extense burns is made. The historical antecedents in its development are exposed and analyzed. This review is aimed at approaching the work of several authors that have created, for some time, a great number of hydration formulas in order to group them and to give updated and summarized information on this problem, that is one of the milestones in the treatment of the adult burn patient during the first hours of his evolution. This review may serve as a guide for those health professionals that in one way or another are related to the management of this affection.

Keywords : Resuscitation of the burn patient; Cuban hydration formula; fluid reposition.
