Over the past decade, there have been a large number of important studies related to fluid management for the surgical patient, resulting in confusion on this critical aspect of patient care. Proper fluid therapy in the perioperative setting has always been important but has only recently had concrete outcome-based guidelines. This is the first comprehensive, up-to-date and practical summary book on the topic.
