Fluid Rate =

Weight =

mL/kg/day =

Most commonly used to determine the total mL/kg/day being given after inputting the mL/hour fluid rate and patient weight. You can also input the weight and total mL/kg/day goal for the patient and have the calculator determine the total mL/HR fluid rate to achieve this goal.

- Fluid Rate: total milliliters per hour of fluid being given

- Weight: the patient's weight

- mL/kg/day: the calculated milliliters per kilogram per day of fluid the patient is receiving.

Add mL/HR rates together from all sources when determining total mL/kg/day.

A 10kg infant has intravenous fluids infusing at a total rate of 22 mL/hour. What is the mL/kg/day total that this represents? Input the following:

- mL/HR rate of fluid: 22

- Weight: 10kg

The calculator solves for mL/kg/day giving an answer of 53.

Example #2

A 3 kg neonate has total daily fluid goals of 100 mL/kg/day. What is the total mL/HR rate that his fluids should infuse at? Input the following:

- Weight: 3kg

- mL/kg/day: 100

The calculator solves for mL/HR rate of fluid and gives a solution of 12.5 mL/HR.
