# Parkland Formula Calculator

The replacement of the fluid lost in our body through any process is called as the fluid resuscitation. The Parkland formula is used for this fluid replacement of burn injuries for the first 24 hours. The replacement can vary based on the percent of the body surface area burned. It can be obtained based on the rule of 9.

#### Formula:

**According to Parkland Formula**
H_{24} = 4 * W_{t} * %BSA
H_{8} = H_{24} / 2
H_{16} = H_{24} / 2
**Where,**
W_{t} = Patient Weight
%BSA = Body Surface Area Affected
H_{24} = Total Fluid Over First 24 Hours
H_{8} = Fluid Over First 8 Hours
H_{16} = Fluid Over Next 16 Hours
### Rule of 9

#### For Adults :

Each Arm : 9 %

Each Leg : 18 %

Head : 9%

Front Torso : 18 %

Back Torso : 18 %

#### For Children :

Each Arm : 9 %

Each Leg : 14 %

Head : 18%

Front Torso : 18 %

Back Torso : 18 %
