This talk aims to answer four major questions: How much fluid should you give perioperatively? Does hypotension matter? Should you use advanced hemodynamic monitoring, and do colloids have any advances over crystalloids?

Using high quality studies and a data based approach in all four categories, a lot of which has come from conversations that have had happened at Evidence Based Perioperative Medicine (EBPOM) meetings, this talk draws some interesting conclusions.
