How to give IV fluids to children without and with severe malnutrition from ‘Pocket Book ofHospital Care for Children - Guidelines for the Management of Common Illnesses with Limited Resources’ WHO2005.

For example, you can print them and display them in relevant wards orclinics (laminated if possible), or use them as a ‘memory aid’ in your pocket, as handouts or as training aids.We thank the WHO for permission to reproduce these charts, and Dr O’Hare who gave us the idea of making thecharts more widely available.
