Fundamentals Question #9

Question

Calculate the intake and output from 0700-1900 for the following client:

The client has an IV infusing at 40 mL/hr. During this shift, the client consumes 8 oz. coffee, 2 six oz. glasses of sweet tea, 4 oz. of broth, 2 T. antacid, 450 mL of water, 3 eight oz. cups of ice, and 4 oz. ice cream.

The family reports emptying 12 oz., 18.5 oz. and 9 oz. from the urinal. The client has a surgical drain with 45 mL out this shift. What is the total intake and output?

Test Taking Tip

The answer for Total Intake is 2160 mL 

IV fluids 40 x 12= 480 mL    2 T of antacid 2 x 15=30 mL
8 oz coffee x 30= 240 mL450 mL of water
2 (6-ounce tea) 12 x 30= 360 mL4 oz of ice cream 4 x 30 = 120 mL
3 (8 oz of ice* this counts half) 3 x 8=24/2=12 x 30 = 360 mL
4 oz of broth 4 x 30= 120 mL

 

The answer for total Output is 1230 mL

12 x 30 mL = 360 mL9 x 30 mL = 270 mL
18.5 x 30 mL = 555 mL45 mL surgical drain
