CUMULATIVE FLUID BALANCE OF INFUSION THERAPY OF NEWBORNS WITH NECROTIZING ENTEROCOLITIS
The aim of the research is to study the connection between the five-day cumulative fluid balance and the outcome of a critical condition in the surgical group of newborns. Material and methods. The study involved 30 newborns with necrotizing enterocolitis in stage IIIB according to Walsh – Kliegman. Groups were formed by the criterion of outcome. Analyzed parameters were age and body weight of participants, hematocrit number; the cumulative five-day fluid balance expressed as a percentage of the initial body weight. The data were carried out by nonparametric statistics. Results and discussion. The only independent factor determining the probability of death from necrotizing enterocolitis of newborns is the gestational age and the body weight as its derivative. The likelihood of an unfavorable outcome in necrotizing enterocolitis of the newborn doesn’t depend on the five-day cumulative fluid balance.
