III. Calculation (based on body weight in kilograms)

  1. First 10 kg: 4 cc/kg/hour (100 cc/kg/24 hours)
  2. Second 10 kg: 2 cc/kg/hour (50 cc/kg/24 hours)
  3. Remainder: 1 cc/kg/hour (20 cc/kg/24 hours)

IV. Example: 35 Kilogram Child

  1. Hourly: 40 cc/h + 20 cc/h + 15 cc/h = 75 cc/hour
  2. Daily: 1000 cc + 500 cc + 300 cc = 1800 cc/day
