As part of our software, we automatically calculate fluid rates for you based on the patient weight you enter in when you add a patient to the software.
Listed below is the formula that we use to calculate rates.
((1.2 x (kg ^ 0.75)) x 70) / 24
This is a standard calculation for fluid rate based on RER of the healthy patient.
