Özet

Fluid and electrolyte balance and acid-base homeostasis are essential components of normal cellular and organ functions, both in the intrauterine and postnatal developmental period. Knowledge of physiologic changes and appropriate management are important aspects of neonatal intensive care. The aim is to ensure successful transition from the fetal to neonatal period and maintain a normal fluid-electrolyte and acid-base balance. In this paper, fluid and electrolyte requirements in the neonate, treatment of sodium and acid-base disorders on which some controversy exists, and also perioperative fluid-electrolyte management are reviewed.
