Storyboard Text

  • Hi Joe, I'm Doctor Pattis and I'll be talking to you about your fluid intake and output.
  • Hi Doctor, can you explain to me what those terms mean?
  • Intake is the act taking in food, fluid or substances in the body. Output is the measurement of bodily waste.
  • So.. how exactly would you measure intake?
  • At meal time, we will check your tray before you eat and after to determine your intake of fluids.
  • We will measure urinary output each time the bedpan is emptied, using an accurate graduate.
  • And how exactly would you measure output?
  • Why is measuring intake and output important?
  • Monitoring your fluid balance with an intake and output allows us to prevent dehydration, edema, or other problems relating to fluid imbalance.
  • We encourage you to drink plenty of water and eat foods like fruits and vegetables everyday in order to prevent other problems from occuring. We ask that you avoid drinks with caffein and alcohol.
  • Alright..Thank you so much Doctor!
