Hi all,I'm having problem with this question:A procainamide drip is ordered (2gms in 250ml D5W) to infuse at 4 mg/min. The patient weighs 165lb. Calculate the drip rate in ml/hr for which theinfusion pump will be set at. Many thanks

Here's another way to arrive at 30mL /hr using dimensional analysis.
Cross out units that are the same.
4mg/min x 1g/1000mg x 250mL/g x 60min/1hr = 60,000/2,000 =30mL/hr
