Changes of body fluids volume may occur at any time before, during or after surgical procedure. The management of fluid & electrolyte balance is an important part of anesthetic care. The goal of perioperative fluid management is to provide the appropriate amount of parenteral fluid to maintain intravascular volume and electrolyte balance.
