The answer is 4
Rationales:
1. Hemoglobin values fluctuate due to the volume of fluid being infused. They are not associated with adequacy of fluid replacement.
2. The pain level is likely to be severe and should be aggressively managed, but it is not specifically related to the adequacy of fluid resuscitation.
3. Thirst is an indicator of dehydration but is not the best measure of fluid resuscitation in the burned patient.
4. Urine output is a good measure of the adequacy of fluid resuscitation, as are vital signs, mentation, capillary refill, and peripheral pulses.
