## We cover emergency treatment of major burns, electrical burns, chemical burns, pediatric burns, and minor burns.

# Quick Parkland Formula Calculator

In case you are looking to calculate the Parkland Formula, here is the way it is calculated in the Parkland Formula Calculator below:

- Total fluid = 4mL x wt (kg) x TBSA (%)
- Give half in the first 8 hours
*from the time of the burn*and half over the next 16 hours. The above calculator factors in the hours elapsed since the burn. - Subtract the volume of IV fluid given in the prehospital setting from the half to be given in the first 8 hours
*from the time of the burn*. Note, this may mean the fluids need to be given over 7 hours, if one hour has elapsed since the burn. - Use Lactated Ringer’s (LR), Plasmalyte or Hartmann’s solution
- For kids <30kg, add D5 1/2 NS maintenance fluid to the above.
