"Burns Fluid Calculator: Parkland or Baxter Formula" is a mobile app designed to determine the fluid needed during resuscitation and maintenance when treating burn patients. The most commonly used resuscitation formula is the pure crystalloid Parkland formula. This formula is also used in this "Burns Fluid Calculator: Parkland or Baxter Formula" app. The Parkland formula for the total fluid requirement in 24 hours is as follows:

* 4ml x TBSA (%) x body weight (kg);

* 50% given in first eight hours;

* 50% given in next 16 hours.


There are several features of "Burns Fluid Calculator: Parkland or Baxter Formula", namely:

🔸 Simple and very easy to use burn app.

🔸 Precise calculation of IV fluid for burn patient with Parkland or Baxter formula.

🔸 Useful when treating burn patient in emergency setting.

🔸 It is totally free. Download now!


In the "Burns Fluid Calculator: Parkland or Baxter Formula" we also takes account the onset when receiving resuscitation and total fluid that were previously given. We also calculate the maintenance fluid rate which includes basal requirements and evaporative losses. Basal requirements is based on body surface area and calculated with Mosteller formula at this app. While basal requirements in children is based on Holiday Segar formula. Evaporative losses is also based on the total burned surface area. 


It is well established that fluid management is fundamental when treating burn patients during the immediate post-trauma period. The aim of resuscitation is to restore and maintain adequate oxygen delivery to all tissues of the body following the loss of sodium, water and proteins. Fluid loss starts immediately after the burn occurs, because heat damage increases the permeability of the capillaries, which means that plasma is able to leak out of the blood circulation.


Disclaimer: All calculations must be re-checked and should not be used alone to guide patient care, nor should they substitute for clinical judgment. Calculations in this "Burns Fluid Calculator: Parkland or Baxter Formula" app might be different with your local practice. Consult to expert doctor whenever necessary.
