Date of publication: September, 2016

Publication type: Quality standard

In a nutshell: This quality standard covers the management of intravenous (IV) fluids in term neonates (babies born at term or born prematurely with a corrected age of term or more), children and young people under 16 years. It covers IV fluids used for a range of conditions and in different hospital settings. It does not cover term neonates, children and young people with condition-specific IV fluid needs, because they are under the care of specialists due to their specific needs.

Some important notes: In case you experience difficulty obtaining this quality standard,  please ask your local health librarian to locate this for you.
