Intravenous fluid resuscitation can rapidly recover blood volume, blood pressure, cardiac function and urine output, which is now mainly performed by using Ringer's solution to prevent adverse reactions.
Nonetheless, general guidelines for fluid resuscitation in avian patients are similar to those used in small animal practice.
Several randomised trials have shown that for children in shock who received fluid resuscitation the survival was significantly increased regardless of the fluid composition used.
In the experiments, pigs were wounded internally, simulating a liver injury, and injected either with Arsenal's foam or standard battlefield fluid resuscitation.

treatment of sepsis-induced hypoperfusion (hypotension persisting after an initial fluid challenge or blood lactate concentration > 4 mmol/L) with fluid resuscitation ([greater than or equal to] 1000 mL of crystalloids to achieve a minimum of 30ml/kg of crystalloids in the first 4 to 6 hours), guided by perfusion indices (central venous pressure (CVP) 8-12mm Hg; mean arterial pressure (MAP) [greater than or equal to] 65mm Hg, urine output [greater than or equal to] 0.

As the authors point out, differences in management, such the judicious use of fluid resuscitation, and maintenance of robust mean arterial pressure may have been responsible for the relatively mild nature and consequences of IAH reported in this study (1).
