Im having some trouble doing this math can anyone explain to me how to do it? Thanks Im so lost right now
1.) The patient is ordered 8 ml of Ranitidine by mouth. It is available as 15 mg in 1 ml. How much medication is the patient receiving with each dose?
2.) Ampicillin 1 gram is ordered IV bid. It is available as 1 gram in 50 ml. The drug text states to run it over 30 minutes. The patient has 100 ml of NS via a primary line. The primary line is 60 gtts/ml, the piggyback tubing available is 15 gtts/ml. How many drops per minute should the IV Ampicillin run at?
thanks all, i cant figure these out
