pediatric weight reference, in a pinch

17 Jun

handy chart from HMC web site:growth

Body Wt quick reference:

  • 2 mo old – 5 kg
  • 1 yr old – 10kg
  • 3 yr old – 15 kg
  • 5 yr old – 20 kg

Of course, every patient weight is variable, especially with obesity, but in tight spot (e.g. a code), you won’t be off by an order of magnitude.
