The Fluid Bolus Feature gives you the precise calculation of the volume and rate to be infused. To calculate the bolus rate you should follow these steps:
1. Choose your Fluids (if using the iPad remember to switch to "Editing mode").
2. Choose "Press to add bolus".
3. Here you must enter volume/kg and over how long you would like the bolus to take place. Smart Flow will then automatically calculate your total volume as well as the bolus rate.
4. Once all values have been entered, press "Done". A separate Bolus line will then appear below the original fluid line with the total volume already entered onto the flowsheet. See below:
That means that you have finished your bolus rate calculation successfully!
