that's ok that no one responded. I figured it out
this is it for anyone else that is interested in these types of problems:
Normal urine output is:
A. Infant: 2-3 ml/kg/hr
B. Toddler/preschooler: 2 ml/kg/hr
C. School-age child: 1 - 2cc/kg/hr
D. Adolescent: 0.5-1 ml/kg/hr
First: Obtain accurate wt. in kg
Second: Measure urine output accurately.
Third: Compute number of hours that patient voided the above amount of urine.
Fourth: Use formula: Amt. of urine divided by wt. in kg
divided by number of hours
At the end of your 8 hours shift, your 10 kg infant voided 300cc. Is this sufficient urine output for this patient?
cc = 300cc x 1 x 1 = 300 = 3.75 cc/kg/hr
kg/hr 10kg 8hr 80
This is sufficient urine output for this patient.
