any recommendations on a site that offers practice problems on intake and output???
Be more specific what sort of help do you need? If you are trying to find the fluid balance it is just subtracting the larger number from smaller and if the intake is greater than 0 the pt is positive, if output is greater than 0 the pt is negative
I think the problem lies with the 1/2 quart. There are 32 ounces in a quart, so 1/2 quart would be 16 ounces.
Then you'd have
270mL for popsicle (3*3=9 9x30=270)
480mL for iced tea (16 x 30= 480)
180mL for water (6 x 30=180)
360 for soda (12 x 30= 360)
total of 1290
which is 20mL less than what the answer says..can't figure this one out...grrr! Its probably staring me right in the face and I'm just not seeing it.
now take that and extrapolate that ratio to the rest of the volumes, and you will be closer. I am thinking the book is using the literal ratio of oz to mil, which is sl more than 1 to 30.....in which case you will needs to find that reference.
