Answer

Aggressive fluid resuscitation to treat intravascular fluid depletion should be instituted. Pressor agents are avoided if possible. Fluid administration requires frequent monitoring of blood pressure, pulse, urine output, blood gases, hemoglobin and hematocrit, electrolytes, and renal function.
