Notes
  • For infants 3.5 to 10 kg, the daily fluid requirement is 100 mL/kg.
  • For children 11 to 20 kg, the daily fluid requirement is 1000 mL + 50 mL/kg for every kg over 10.
  • For children >20 kg, the daily fluid requirement is 1500 mL + 20 mL/kg for every kg over 20, up to a maximum of 2400 mL daily.
  • This calculation does not apply to newborn infants (ie, from 0 to 28 days after full-term delivery).
  • To determine the composition of maintenance fluids, refer to UpToDate topics on intravenous fluid therapy in children.
