A 1 yr old baby suffers second degree burns on both his legs, half of the face and right arm. what is the amount and type of fluid that needs to be infused duing the first 2 days ?




  #2

both legs count for 3X9 + 9 for the arm + 9/2 for the 1/2 face ( head counts 2x9, but since you have mention 1/2 of the face, I suppose the scalp is not burned).
Total estimated= 40.5%. Is it correct?
We also need his weight to calculate the fluid replacement and Maintenance. But for now, I will give him 20ml/kg/h until I can figure out the weight.
