Appropriate UOP following Renal Transplant

  1. Hello, I'm fairly new to nursing and about to work on a Pediatric floor where we are receiving fresh post-op renal transplant pts. What is the expected UOP of the post-op renal pt. versus the normal medical pt's UOP standard of 0.5-1cc/kg/hour. I heard one needs to subtract 1/3 from the hourly rate of fluid infused to account for insensible loss in order to arrive at an appropriate UOP. Is this true?
