Abstract

Neonates with surgical conditions may experience significant electrolyte abnormalities and dehydration of varying degrees. Increased awareness of perioperative hyponatremia and its associated morbidity has led to a shift in Pediatric fluid guidelines favoring the use of isotonic fluids. However, there is a lack of evidence-based guidelines for neonatal perioperative fluid administration, resulting in the extrapolation of fluid management principles from adults and children. This article reviews perioperative neonatal fluid management.
