Parkland Formula for Burns

Calculates fluid requirements for burn patients in a 24-hour period.

Rule of 9's for Adults: 9% for each arm, 18% for each leg, 9% for head,18% for front torso, 18% for back torso.

Rule of 9's for Children: 9% for each arm, 14% for each leg, 18% for head, 18% for front torso, 18% for back torso.

Calculations must be re-checked and should not be used alone to guide patient care nor should they substitute for clinical judgement. disclaimer
