You may have noticed that no fluid rate would get saved into a Smart Flow Anesthetic and Flowsheet templates (e.g., 2.0x maintenance, 3.0x maintenance, etc.). 


We feel that every patient should be clinically assessed, and a decision regarding the fluid rate should be made by an appropriate staff member before commencing treatments.


Smart Flow will offer a calculated suggestion based upon the weight of the patient, but we leave the final decision for the clinician. We also provide the option to select an Sx rate of 5ml/kg/hour from within a parameter's properties:


To change the fluid rate, please open the parameter, select the required value, and click DONE.  


For more information on how we calculate our fluid rates, please see this document: How do we calculate the fluid rate?
