- I am wondering what other units do in regards to keeping track of urine output. The Level III unit I work in does not measure urine output at all.
You don't measure at all? Not even counting wet diapers?? I thought measuring output was a standard of care
While our kids are on IV fluids, we weigh diapers. We aim for at least 1-2 ml/kg/hr; 3-5 is considered good. Once they are off fluids, haven't had issues with output for a while and are close to moving to level2, then they will write to just count diapers.
