# Nclex prep

1. I came across the following question while preparing for NCLEX, my answer was wrong and the explanation for the correct answer is very brief, can any body help please? Thank you

A client undergoes peritoneal dialysis. The physician orders 2 liters to be instilled with a dwell time of 40 minutes. The nurse measures the outflow and finds it to be 1,800 mL. During the nurse's shift, the client drinks 700 mL of fluids and voids 400 mL. Record the client's intake in milliliters.

intake = 2litters (2000ml) +700ml = 2700ml
out= 1800 + 400ml = 2200ml
The difference between inflow and outflow is considered intake. which is 500ml
