Andrej Vitushka posted a topic in drug treatment and analgesiaDear colleagues, Are there any differences with antibiotics' dosing for infants with hydrops fetalis. Today having a boy 37 weeks 4340 g weight with profoung edema of head, neck and upper part of the trunk. About 200 ml was evacuated from both sides of the thorax. What bodyweight should we use to calculate antibiotics' dose -- 4340 g or 4130 g (minus fluid from thorax) or something else? He is on HFOV. Blood pressure is stabilizing by 10 + 10 mcg/kg per minute of Dopamine and Dobutamine. Diuresis is good and no signs of impaired periferal perfusion. Many thanks.
