DescriptionThis application, designed by a veterinary medicine specialist, will assist both students and practitioners to rapidly calculate fluid therapy requirements for the adult horse. Based on user input of patient body weight and other variables, fluid requirements can be obtained for maintenance, deficits and losses. In addition, calculations can be made for fluid rates (l/hr, drops/sec) and other fluids such as plasma and whole blood. Additional sections are included for other additives such as bicarbonate, potassium and practical composition of oral / enteral fluids.
Although designed specifically for horses, the calculations for most sections can be used for small animals. User data input for small animal weights will provide accurate data for these species, with maintenance fluid requirements set at 60ml/kg/day.
Knowledge of constraints and limitations is essential for the proper use of this application. Individual judgement is involved in entering data, interpreting outputs and assessing suitability of the information provided. Every attempt has been made to ensure the accuracy of the software and its calculations. However, the user is solely responsible for the risk of use.
