Abstract

Fluids used for flushing arterial catheters, bronchial lavage, and drug administration are not normally considered when assessing daily fluid intake, yet infants weighing less than 1000 g at birth gained up to 12 ml/kg/day of extra fluid and 2.4 mmol/kg/day (mean) of extra sodium from these hidden sources.
