parkland formula

Hi:

According to Parkland formula:

we give 50%of calculated fluid in the first 8 hours, then the rest 50% fluid for the rest 16 hours out of 24 hours.

We do not give colloid until the second day because we might waste the colloid fluid into the third space.

Please correct me if i am wrong.

I agree - only crystalloids, usually Lactated Ringer's, for the first 24 hours. If the patient does not have adequate urine output by 24 hours you might start albumin or other colloid.
