The Alfred pre-hospital fluid isotonic crystalloid resuscitation formula for major burns (body weight (kg) ?? TBSA burnt = mls in the first 2 h) was adopted by Ambulance Victoria in 2007 for the early and consistent correction of fluid deficit in major burns patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate the associated change in pre-hospital fluid administration.
