Advanced Pathophysiology: Disorders of Fluid and Electrolyte Balance

A 7-year-old boy is a patient in your intensive care unit. He was on a camping trip with his family when he accidentally fell on the campfire, causing severe second- and third-degree burns over 60% of his body. The clinical care team tells his parents that it will be critical to maintain their sonâ€s airway and keep his fluid levels high.
In your initial post answer the following questions:

The father is confused and asks you why his sonâ€s fluid level is important after a burn. How would you explain this to him?
After your explanation, the father nods that he understands. He then asks how you will measure his sonâ€s fluid levels. How would you respond?
As a clinician with knowledge of physiology, which aspects of this boyâ€s condition would you be most concerned about?
