||200 mL gastric tube formula and 50 mL water administered.
||220 mL urine voided.
||230 mL urine voided.
||IV D 5W infusing; 550 mL remaining in bag. 200 mL gastric tube formula and 50 mL water administered.
Calculate the client's total fluid intake for the 8-hour shift. (Record your answer using a whole number. Do not round.)
My calculated total intake is 1580 but i was marked wrong. Why is Ice Chips divided into half?
RATIONALE FROM THE REVIEW
The client's input includes intravenous fluid (IVF): 900 mL at start of shift minus 550 mL remaining = 350 mL. Ice chips: half of frozen volume is 8 oz = 240 mL
(1 oz = 30 mL). Enteral formula plus water: 250 mL at 0900, 1200, and 1500 = 750 mL. Total fluid intake = 1340 mL.
