New clinical resource presents the latest evidence of effective procedures for fluid management

10-06-2016 09:47 AM CET | Health & Medicine

Press release from: EPG Health Media

epgonline.org is pleased to announce the latest addition to its range of educational resources for healthcare professionals. The Fluid Management Knowledge Centre is intended as a learning tool to educate healthcare professionals on effective procedures for fluid management in a selection of clinical scenarios.

Currently, the choice of intravenous fluids used for the resuscitation of acutely ill patients in clinical practice is determined mainly by clinician preference1. However, emerging evidence from multiple randomised controlled trials (RCTs) indicates that the choice of resuscitation fluid affects patient outcomes1–3.

Consequently, the primary purpose of the Fluid Management Knowledge Centre is to improve patient survival rates by providing information on the pros and cons of different types of intravenous fluids in a range of clinical scenarios.
The Fluid Management Knowledge Centre is accessible at the following address: https://www.epgonline.org/fluid-management-knowledge-centre/en/index.cfm. In order to access the resource in full, users should register for free via the registration form on the epgonline.org homepage.

Information is divided into four main sections. The ‘Overview’ section presents options for intravenous fluids and key clinical scenarios where fluid management may be required such as in the treatment of sepsis and septic shock, liver cirrhosis and cardiac surgery. A ‘Publications digest’ section summarises important publications in a short, easily digestible format. An ‘Events’ section has expert videos recorded during United European Gastroenterology Week (UEGW) 2013 and a Key Issues Dialogue, which features a panel of experts discussing the use of albumin for volume replacement. Lastly, the ‘Resources’ section contains links to treatment guidelines and key publications, and educational slide sets including a comparison between albumin and hydroxyethyl starch (HES) for volume replacement.

Dr Toby Galbraith, Director of Content Strategy for epgonline.org, said: “Fluid management is an often overlooked area of medicine, but can have a huge impact on survival in seriously ill patients. We hope that this new educational resource provides a useful primer of best practice and allows our audience to be more confident in their clinical choices.” The Fluid Management Knowledge Centre has been developed by epgonline.org in collaboration with CSL Behring, with content provided by CSL Behring, and is not intended for healthcare professionals outside Europe.
