How to record fluid intake and output?


(Gerald Pulver) #1

When a patient is hospitalized, the nursing staff may track fluid input (such as saline) and output (urine). Given the imprecise methodology typically used for assessment, we expect that these measures would likely belong in the OBSERVATION table. Is this the typical approach? What concepts do you use?

If I selected the wrong forum for this topic, I hope that a moderator will move it.

Thanks,
Gerry

Not sure if there is any typical approach for this.

Right.
Both Total fluid output and Total fluid input belong to Observation domain.
