we really only have seen HC in our SCT patients. I can remember 1 patient that got HC with HD ifos in my 17 years in ONC. For SCT and patients admitted for CTX or IFOS we encourage voiding Q2 hours and hyper-hydration checking for SG and blood with each void.

For pediatric oncology patients receiving chemotherapy that puts the patient at risk for hemorrhagic cystitis, what is the most effective measure to ensure patient hyperhydration? For example, protocols on my unit call for urine parameters in which we ensure hyperhydration by having the patients void a certain volume every 2 hours. Other evidence includes urinalysis, specific gravity, etc. Thank you for your responses!
