I am confused. I am a new grad and asked the question of " How can you tell if a patient is getting too much IVF?" I know it goes by kg. I tried to look this up and had no luck. I believe it is for a bolus 5cc/kg and for maintenance something like 3cc/kg. I asked my preceptors and nobody knew the exact formula. they said they can tell if it is too much but they do not know the exact formula. Can anybody please help me. I don't want ot be an ignorant pediatric nurse ,considering IVF is the most common intervention.
