You may have noticed that no fluid rate (whether it be 2 x maintenance, 3 x maintenance, 5 x maintenance etc) will ever save within a Smart Flow template. 


Smart Flow was specially designed this way as a safely feature. We feel that each & every patient should be clinically assessed, & a decision made re the fluid rate before commencing treatment. 


We do provide the option to select a 'Sx rate' of 5ml/kg/hour from within the Anesthetic Sheet:


Smart Flow will calculate the rate based upon the weight of the patient, but we leave the decision of what factor to use for the clinician.
