Fluid in RD

Recommended Posts

1 Humidifier add in total fluid intake.2 liberal fluid intake may increasing incidence of opening of PDA.

I USUALLY set fluid intake to keep U/O about 2-3 ml /kg /day.


1st what is mean of U/O ?

2nd this is true in PT but in FT

thanks for asking this important question .

we dont restrict fluid but Multicenter randomised trial proved that less hydration is better than more hydration

in terms of decreasing morbidity and mortality .

its better not to push fluid by 30cc daily , insteasd 20 is ok as long as you keep u,e,body wt normal.

also practicaly: more fluid more odema more risks PDA, more difficult line ,and finaly

theoritical risk for SIADH
