The review of literature discusses modern trends of infusion therapy for children and adults in acute period of severe burning injury. The authors used PubMed and Google Scholar to search for the primary terms and the data of own research. The conclusion is that the formulas used for infusion volume calculations often lead to significant fluid of affected person and serious complications. In order to avoid such an overload the authors suggest key points of infusion therapy using invasive monitoring of hemodynamic in children and adults with acute burning traumas.
