Evidence for the use of restrictive volume of intravenous fluid resuscitation, compared with unrestrictive volume, by presenting illness and outcome. Benefit indicates that studies show a benefit to restricting fluid volume, No Benefit indicates that there is no benefit to restricting fluid volume, and Harm indicates that there is harm associated with restricting fluid volume. No Studies Available indicates no studies are available for a particular illness/outcome combination.
