Hi all ~
We had our Nursing Care of the Child Rearing Family final today, and one of the questions was a cc/hr question.
Basically, it said " Pedi pt weighs 20 lb. Order is 1000ml/1st10kg/day. How many cc's per hour should the IV be running?"
Everyone in our class came up with either 38cc/hr or 42cc/hr - but no one is certain that they were right!
If you can give us the correct answer, we'd ALL appreciate it. (waiting for the instructor to inform us will take awhile)
Thanks! Now on to Psych rotation...

mL/hr = 1000 mL/10 kg x 1 kg/2.2 lbs x 20 lbs/24 hrs x 1 hr = 20000/528 = 37.87
