Answer

Aggressive fluid and electrolyte management, pain control, and meticulous skin care are important. Fluid resuscitation with crystalloids should follow standard guidelines used for burn patients. However, patients with TEN typically require less aggressive fluid replacement than that of burn patients because of less severe microvascular injury.
