# Intake & Output - Quincy College

Intake & Output PNU145 Fundamentals Cheryl Proffitt RN,MSN Intake and Output What is Intake and Output Input and output is calculated for a variety of patients in different settings from Intensive Care Units (ICU) to home

Other cases includes clients with: foley Catheter, fluid restrictions,stage 3-4 pressure Ulcers Examples Intake and Output The process involves recording all the fluid that goes into the patient and the fluid that leaves the body.

Remember in normal conditions the intake should equal output in 24 hours. Intake Items to Calculate Liquids taken PO such as water, juice, milk, etc Intravenous fluids (IV) such as

D5W, D5RL Feedings via nasograstic or PEG tubes Output Items to Calculate Urine or liquid feces Blood excessive bleeding Drainage from wounds or suction

Intake and Output When calculating intake and output, consider all fluids in and out of the body. Having a sheet of paper at the bedside to record intake of fluids is desirable. At the end of the shift, the paper is collected and a new sheet provided. All intake AND OUTPUT ARE RECORDED at the end of the shift Intake and output

Senerio A patient has recorded the following on a sheet of paper at the bedside: Breakfast: eggs, toast, 6 oz of coffee ; small orange juice (4 ounces)

Lunch: sandwich, apple, 8 oz of tea Dinner: chicken, broccoli, rice, 2 glasses of tea

Between meals: 8 oz of water 1000 mL of D5 W infusing IV at 30 mL/hour Calculate the Intake for a 12 hour shift:

Note you need to covert ounces to mLs Calculation Item mLs Coffee 6 oz x 30 =180 mL OJ 4 oz x30 =120 mL Tea 8 X 30 oz=240 mL Water 8 x30 oz =240 mL IV 30mL x 12 360 mL

Total Intake for 12 hrs PO= 780mL IV infusion= 360mL Intake and Output Senerio The patient recorded the following amounts voided on the sheet of paper: 400 cc at 7:00 am; 100cc at 10:00 am; 200cc at 12

noon; 150 cc at 2:00 pm; 400cc at 6:00 pm. The nurse emptied 300cc from a JP tube. The patient vomited 100cc at 4:00 pm What is the total output for the 12 hour shift? Calculation Item mLs

Urine 1250 Drainage 300 Vomited 100 Total Output 1650 mLs Some Important Info Clinical Do's and Dont's DO- Identify whether your patient has undergone surgery or if he has a medical condition or takes medication that can affect fluid intake or loss.

Measure and record all intake and output. If you delegate this task, make sure you know the totals and the fluid sources. At least every 8 hours, record the type and amount of all fluids he's received and describe the route as oral, parenteral, rectal, or by enteric tube. Some Important Info Record ice chips as fluid at approximately half their volume.

Record the type and amount of all fluids the patient has lost and the route. Describe them as urine, liquid stool, vomitus, tube drainage and any fluid aspirated from a body cavity. If irrigating a nasogastric or another tube or the bladder, measure the amount instilled and subtract it from total output. Some Important Info DO- For an accurate measurement, keep toilet

paper out of your patient's urine. Measure drainage in a calibrated container. Observe it at eye level. Evaluate patterns and values outside the normal range, keeping in mind the typical 24 hour intake and output. Some Important Info DO- When looking at 8 hour urine output, ask how many times the patient voided, to identify problems.

Regard intake and output holistically because age, diagnosis, medical problem, and type of surgical procedure can affect the amounts. Evaluate trends over 24 to 48 hours. Some Important Info DONTSDon't delegate the task of recording intake and output until you're sure the person who's going to do it understands its importance. Don't assess output by amount only. Consider color, color changes, and odor

too. Don't use the same graduated container for more than one patient. Some Important Info References WWW.Google.com. Intake and output. Retrieved ,Oct.10th,2013.
