See Oral Rehydration Therapy Protocol in Pediatric Dehydration (mild to moderate dehydration). Start the oral rehydration protocol (see above) Calculate 24 hour maintenance requirements. See Maintenance Fluid Requirements in Children (Holliday-Segar Formula); Calculate Deficit (See Pediatric Dehydration). Mild Dehydration: 3-5% deficit (50 ml/kg deficit, 30 ml/kg if >10 kg The most common estimate is the Holliday-Segar formula, which uses patient weight to calculate metabolic expenditure in kcal/24 hours, which approximates fluid needs in mL/24 hours (see Holliday-Segar Formula for Maintenance Fluid Requirements by Weight). More complex calculations (eg, those using body surface area) are rarely required Deficit fluids are based on degree of dehydration. In hypernatremic dehydration, a fraction of the deficit fluids is a free water deficit (4 mL/excess Na+ in mEq/kg). Deficit sodium and potassium are calculated on the remaining fluid deficit: 0.6 * 145 mEq/L, and 0.4 * 150 mEq/L, respectively

These are the two methods for calculating pediatric maintenance fluid rates, applied in the case of a child weighing 26 kg. 1) Daily volume formula: (100 mL for each of the first 10 kg) + (50 mL for each kg between 11 and 20) + (20 mL for each additional kg past 20 kg) = 1,000 mL + 500 mL + 120 mL = 1,620 mL * Free water deficit = 165 X (0*.6)(15) - (0.6)(15) = 0.9 liters. 150 To calculate the fluid requirements of this patient, one has to again give this child maintenance. The deficit is no longer made up of of normal saline, but rather is made up of the free water deficit that we calculated above In children, the amount of fluid given in bolus can be calculated using the formula: bolus fluids = weight (kg) * 20 ml with the maximum limit of 1000 milliliters = 1 liter. This amount should be given as fast as possible - as shock is a direct life-threatening state Maintenance fluid calculations are based on the composition of maintenance water and use the Holiday Segar, or 4:2:1 method Dehydration can be a medical emergency. Identification of the degree of deficit is based on patient history and physical signs on exam.

Malcolm Holliday, MD, (d. 2014) was a pediatric nephrologist and physiologist. Dr. Holliday's original work studying inherited tubular disorders and congenital renal defects eventually led him to become professor of pediatrics and chief of the Division of Pediatric Nephrology at University of California San Francisco, a position he held for over two and a half decades of his 60 year career Once this has been figured, you divide the amount by 24 to get the hourly IV **fluid** flow rate. Being able to **calculate** **pediatric** IV math when working with children is very important. All facilities have policies and protocols that are to be followed for the calculations and administration of the **pediatric** **fluids** Fluid therapy is divided into MAINTENANCE, DEFICIT, and REPLACEMENT requirements. Our focus for this week is MAINTENANCE REQUIREMENTS. Maintenance fluid can be defined as the amount of fluid required to compensate for ongoing fluid losses, thus maintaining steady state in the body. It can be given by intravenous routes or oral routes (if patien Calculates free water deficit by estimated total body water. Pearls/Pitfalls This tool provides an estimate of free water deficit based on a patient's body weight; this can be incorrect in patients with signfiicant weight gain or loss (especially from fluid sources) Med.

Daily fluid requirements. 100 cc/kg for 1st 10 kg of the patient's weight; 50 cc/kg for the 2nd 10 kg of the patient's weight; 20 cc/kg for the remaining weight; Fluid requirements per hour: Daily fluid requirements are divided into approximate hourly rates which gives the 4-2-1 formula often used to calculate hourly infusion rates of IV fluids Fluid electrolyte management in pediatrics Enter weight of patient to calculate maintenance fluid rate. Assessment If clinically dehydrated, estimate percentage dehydration and the calculator will incorporate fluid deficit into calculations

Rate of fluid administration should be adjusted according to ongoing clinical reassessment including fluid balance. If electrolytes are deranged, consult senior medical staff and relevant guideline, and consider slower replacement of fluid deficit; Approach to rehydration. 1. Assess the degree of dehydration July 2017 - V0.18 Paediatric - Daily Fluid Prescription & Balance Chart Aims and outcomes of session. Aim: To provide guidance on correctly completing the Outcomes: Demonstrate the ability to: calculate and complete fluid prescription. correctly administer fluids. correctly complete a fluid balance chart Severe dehydration by clinical examination suggests a fluid deficit of 10-15% of body weight in infants and 6-9% of body weight in older children. The daily maintenance fluid is added to the fluid..

To calculate fluid rate: A B This deficit is replaced over 48 hours Calculate daily maintenance fluid: Body Weight Fluid Requirement 3-10kg 100mL/kg/day 10-20kg 1000mL + (50mL/kg/day for each kg >10kg) >20kg 1500mL + (20mL/kg/day for each kg > 20Kg). The most accurate way to calculate a child's fluid deficit is: Deficit (mL) = [Premorbid weight (kg) minus current weight (kg)] x 1000. If a pre-morbid weight is not available, use: Deficit (mL) = weight (kg) x % dehydration x 10. Replace deficit over 24-48 hours

Replacement fluids normally come from dietary intake of foods and drinks. Metabolic processes are in charge with the fine balance between fluids lost and replaced and the maintenance of normal values for sodium, potassium and chloride. The dehydration assessment in pediatrics according to the clinical dehydration scale has three degrees When we talk of 5% dehydration, it means that the child has lost an amount of fluid equal to 5% of the body weight. If you have an accurate pre-illness weight, you may use that weight. Alternatively, the pre-illness weight can be calculated as follows: So, A 10 kg child who is 5% dehydrated will weigh 9.5 kg Calculate Fluid Deficit Fluid deficit = 5 (%dehydration) X 10 (weight in kg) X 10 = 500mL. If choosing to replace the deficit over 24 hours, this equates to 20mL/hr (rounding for ease of measuring) which is added to the child's maintenance hourly fluid rate. 2. Calculate Maintenance hourly fluid rate Maintenance rate (mL/hr) = 40 plus [2x. deficit has been lost from the intracellular fluid space (ICF) and that the mean concentration of potassium in this space is 150 mEq/L. In this calculation it is further assumed that electrolyte loss is isotonic to the fluid space from which the fluid and electrolyte have been lost and thus my reference to the isotonic K+ deficit A basic and accurate way to calculate the replacement fluid requirements is to measure the volume (and sometimes the electrolyte composition) of the fluid lost be it stool, urine or gastric fluids.. Deficit Therapy. As noted earlier, when working with a dehydrated child the initial step is to determine the severity and type of dehydration

- The maintenance fluid calculator was derived in 1957 by Holliday and Segar for the pediatric population but has persisted in use for both adults and pediatric patients to date. It was derived based on estimated energy expenditure amongst sicker children admitted to hospitals. The formula is based off of the assumption that hospitalized patients.

- • 1kg = 1L, therefore the dog has a 2800mL fluid deficit • If the fluid lost is to be replaced over 24 hours, the maintenance requirement is added to the fluid deficit to work out the total amount to be given over a 24 hour period: • e.g. 1750mL + 2800mL = 4550mL over 24 hours • In a severely dehydrated animal the deficit may be.

Pediatrics. Plastic Surgery correction of hypernatremia begins with a calculation of the fluid deficit as shown below. They have devised a formula that can be used to calculate the change. Once this has been figured, you divide the amount by 24 to get the hourly IV fluid flow rate. Being able to calculate pediatric IV math when working with children is very important. All facilities have policies and protocols that are to be followed for the calculations and administration of the pediatric fluids IV Fluids ‐1 • Fluids: - Average DKA patient is 5‐8L depleted upon presentation. - Give 1‐2L NS bolus in 1st hour (usually done in ER but double check them!) - Goal is to replace ½ fluid deficit within first 8 hrs. - Don't forget about urine los Suppose we get an asymptomatic patient of 70 Kg with a serum potassium level of 3.0 mmol/L and he is on nil by mouth but having an adequate diuresis, we proceed this way. 1) Deficit of potassium in mmol = (3.5 - 3.0) x 70 x 0.4 = 14 mmol 2) Daily potassium requirement = 1 x 70 = 70 mmol 3) Total requirement = 14+70 = 84 mmol = (84/13.4) = 6.3 g KC

Pediatric Guidelines. David is a pediatric nurse in a busy intensive care unit. He is currently working with Jason a 16-month-old infant with fluid volume deficiency related to dehydration and the infant requires more fluid to excrete the solute load. Water is also required for fecal losses and for growth purposes. The fluid requirements increase by 15-20 ml/kg/day until a maximum of 150 ml/kg/day (table 3). Sodium and potassium should be added after 48 h of age and glucose infusion should be maintained at 4-6 mg/kg/mi * Three part formula for deriving amounts of fluid to be replaced: A*. Deficit is defined as the time the patient is NPO to the time surgery begins. 1. 4 ml/kg/hr for the first 0-10 kg. 2. 2 ml/kg/hr for the next 11-20 kg. 3. 1 ml/kg/hr for weight greater than 21 k Fluid deficit calculation for dehydration: body weight (kg) x % dehydration = volume in liters to correct.

Although these children lack distinct signs of dehydration, they should be given more fluid than usual to prevent dehydration from developing. Table 1 shows the classification of diarrhea with-out dehydration or blood in stools, according to the IMCI strategy **There is a rapid way to calculate both deficit and maintenance fluid together in severe hypernatremic dehydration by giving 1.3-1.5 of maintenance. For instance in above case maintenance was 1000 * 1.5 = 1500ml, in 3rd scenario B as well as C, total fluid was calculated to be 1750 and 1500 ml respectively, which approximately near from the.

If you are concerned about your child's fluid intake, you may want to calculate how much liquid he should be receiving based on his size. The simplest method for determining fluid needs is the Holliday-Segar Calculation. This method bases fluid requirements on the child's weight, using the average requirement of 100 mL water fo The Urine Output and Fluid Balance calculates urine output over a 24 hour period and fluid balance based on urine output (assuming no other fluid losses). This urine output calculator estimates the urine output rate per kg per hour, along with fluid balance, based on fluid intake

The amount of IV fluid required by a child will depend on the indication, his or her level of dehydration and any concurrent conditions. Maintenance fluid requirements are calculated based on a child's body weight.

Review the different types of shock and vital signs characteristic of shock. 3. Compare fluid management at the initial presentation of shock versus the stabilization/deficit replacement stage. 4

Fluid Homeostasis in Children. To achieve normal fluid homeostasis, fluid intake must balance losses. The latter consist of urine output plus insensible losses (evaporative from the skin surface and respiratory tract), with the addition of fluid loss in the stool, which in the absence of diarrhea should be minimal 20 mL/kg IV bolus (Usual Max: 1,000 mL/bolus) over 5 to 20 minutes. Children with septic shock often have a large fluid deficit and may require 40 to 60 mL/kg during the first hour and 200 mL/kg or more during the first 8 hours of therapy. May repeat as needed to restore blood pressure and tissue perfusion Oral fluid therapy is effective, safe, convenient, and inexpensive compared with IV therapy. Oral fluid therapy is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the WHO and should be used for children with mild to moderate dehydration who are accepting fluids orally unless prohibited by copious vomiting or underlying disorders (eg. Hyponatremia is a common electrolyte disturbance frequently requiring fluid administration for correction to physiologic levels. Rapid correction can be dangerous for patients, leading to cerebral edema and osmotic demyelination among other complications. 1 Determining a safe rate of fluid administration to prevent these issues relies on patient and fluid variables Our urine output calculator will show you an easy way of performing daily urine output calculations. Our tool will equip you with your patient's fluid balance and urine output in ml/ kg/ hr..

Isotonic versus hypotonic maintenance IV fluids in hospitalized children: a meta-analysis. Pediatrics 2014. Maintaining the balance of fluid and electrolytes is crucial to the care of patients across the continuum. To do this, a practitioner must be cognizant of key monitoring and assessment parameters. Key electrolytes, their function within the body, normal values, signs and symptoms of imbalances, key treatment modalities, and other considerations.

Using the surface area method, calculate the maintenance fluids and electrolytes for a 185 cm tall patient who weighs 55 kilograms: The surface area is calculated as sqrt(55*185/3600) = 1.68 m 2 Thus, this patient would require 2.5 liters of fluid per day, with electrolyte requirements of 87.4 mEq of Na, 53.8 mEq of K, and 53.8 of Cl ** Base Excess / Base Deficit**. Calculation of the base excess or deficit is a way of quantifying HCO 3-.. Base excess is the quantity of base (HCO 3-, in mEq/L) that is above or below the normal range of buffer base in the body (22 -28 mEq/L).This cannot be calculated from PCO 2 and pH as the hemoglobin also contributes to the buffer base. One can use the Siggaard-Andersen nomogram to estimate. Pediatric Fluids: Supplemental case example LR, an 18.3 kg, 3 yo girl is being seen in the emergency department for treatment for a recent bout of vomiting and diarrhea She was previously seen at a local Urgent Care, diagnosed with moderate dehydration, and sent home with instructions to admin Pedialyte Calculate the initial IV fluids that should be administered. Then calculate the total fluid requirement for replacement over the following 24-hour period. Resuscitation fluids. Bolus = 20 mL/kg x 15 kg = 300 mL over <10 minutes; 24-hour fluid requirement. Fluid deficit = 10% x 15kg x 10 = 1500 m

Traditionally, children with DKA are assumed to be severely dehydrated, with fluid deficits ranging from 10% to 15%, with a conservative estimate assumed at 10%. 21 However, over the years, increasing concerns of CE, related to over-estimation of fluid deficit and over-zealous fluid administration 7,22 have brought the spotlight on the deficit. ** Ileostomy and Fluid Loss zNormally 1 to 1**.5 liters enter the colon from the ileum. zIleostomy output should average 10-15 mL/kg/d. zThe proximal bowel can adapt to the fluid and electrolyte losses of a distal small bowel stoma. zAfter a period of adaptation, the absorptive capacity of the small bowel proximal to the ileostomy increases, and the bowel can reduc

This calculator is used to calculate the amount of fluid and electrolyte needed for pediatric patients at hospital by using the most precise methods. And You can use it to calculate: Maintenance fluid requirement. Maintenance electrolyte requirement. Fluid deficit. Electrolyte deficit. Replacement ongoing loss. Rate of fluid infusion note ** A fluctuation in fluid volume of just 5-10% can have an adverse effect on health (Large, 2005)**. A deficit in fluid volume is known as a negative fluid balance and, if fluid intake is greater than output, the body is in positive fluid balance (Scales and Pilsworth, 2008). Dehydratio Much of the information about the specific fluid and electrolyte deficits in DKA was obtained in the 1930s from work on two young men with diabetes whose fluid and electrolyte balance was studied in great detail before, while, and after they were allowed experimentally to become ill with DKA. 1 The reported fluid deficit appeared to be. Fluid Resuscitation in the Pediatric Patient Require greater amounts of fluid Greater surface area per unit body mass More sensitive to fluid overload Base deficit: at 24 hrs pb, a BD ±2 reflects adequate fluid resuscitation. Cochrane Report: human albumin no value to calculate maintenance and deficit fluid amounts but still additional amounts of fluid must be calculated to compensate for this ongoing loss. -In pediatrics, calculation of the amount of fluid which is needed is dependent on the body weight. Therefore, maintenance fluid is calculated as the following: 100 ml/kg/day For 1st 10 k

Ongoing losses = Amount per loss (ml/kg) x Bodyweight (kg) x No. of losses; These calculations are then added together to allow for the total fluid requirement in a 24 hour period. It is important to assess these requirements on a daily basis as losses may be increased. induced expansion of the extracellular fluid volume (Class I, Level of Evidence A). 2,22,23. 1.3.3.6. Vasopressin antagonists are non-formulary at UWHC (e.g. tolvaptan, conivaptan). 1.3.4. In pediatric patients: Correction of symptomatic hyponatremia should occur at a rate that reverses the symptoms of hyponatremia and restores any. ** Fluid is required to compensate for the hours of pre-op NPO status**. Fluid is required to keep the patient hydrated during the immediate post-op period, when PO intake may still be compromised. Fluid is required to counteract the (possibly) dehydrating anti-hypertension med that the patient took in the AM so as not to show up with increased BP
