Brief description Intravenous fluid therapy is one of the most common and important treatments for children in hospital. In spite of this we know very little about what fluid should be used and there is now good evidence that children are experiencing adverse outcomes because of fluid treatment. The aim of this trial is to determine which intravenous fluid is best in children. It will be the largest and most relevant intravenous fluid trial performed in children. The results will have an immediate impact on treating children worldwide.
