Fusch et al developed an equation to predict daily water turnover in pediatric patients.
Patient selection: pediatric patient <= 15 years old (<= 180 months)
(1) age in months
(2) body weight in kilograms
estimated turnover for water in mL per kg per day =
= 200 / ((age in months)^0.333)
daily turnover of water in mL =
= (body weight in kilograms) * (estimated turnover for water in mL per kg per day)
