How long can a terminal patient last without fluids?
Specifically, a terminally ill patient that cannot digest solid foods and has a PEG tube was getting 250cc of IV Fluids each day. Patient has begun to not tolerate this amount, now is down to maybe 200cc once every 3 days or so. Patient is drinking a lot of fluids, but I'm unsure how much is actually being absorbed. Patient also has only one functioning kidney.

Terminal illness is metastatic ovarian cancer with malignant bowel obstruction. Patient has lost roughly 25 pounds in a month and a half and is receiving no IV nutrition. Initial prognosis about a month and a half ago was days to weeks.

I'm looking for a rough estimate of time left, as well as an estimate as to how long until patient is comatose.

Remember the general rule of 3's: 3 minutes without air, 3 days without water, 3 weeks without food.

You need to measure her fluid output, as long as she's taking fluids and putting out she can go another two weeks to a month.
