    Advice

    • Minimum acceptable urine ouput for pediatric patients is typically quoted as 1ml/kg/hr.
    • Volume losses (like vomit, diarrhea) should be replaced; pediatric patients are highly prone to dehydration due to their low blood volume.

    Formula

    Often on inpatient pediatrics services, ins are recorded as mL/kg and outs are recorded as mL/kg/hour.
