More Drug calculations....again I think you will all get more from this if you actually prescribe the the drugs/fluids/additives on a real drug chart
1. The fluid protocol in your hospital for children is as follows. Maintenance fluids: 4ml/kg/hr first 10 kilo, 2ml/kg/hr 2nd 10 kilos, 1ml/kg/hr subsequent weight. Prescribe maintenance fluids Maintenance for 5, 11, 18, 25 and 30 kg children on a drug chart
In order to get some prescribing resources out there we intend to publish a series of prescribing problems on the website. The problems will appear at least weekly with the "answers" appearing a couple of days later. We'll use the standard exam stationery available on the LSE, but also available below in case you haven't got access to the LSE.
