Abstract

The role of intravenous fluid and electrolyte replacement is increasingly recognised in the clinical management of Ebola virus disease. However, outbreaks typically occur in resource-limited settings where electrolyte measurement may be initially unavailable. Here we highlight potential strategies for empiric fluid and electrolyte therapy based on experience from Sierra Leone.
