I'm in my second semester and I'm kinda confused about doing this set up, like the drip factor and all that. The instructor taught us, but I still don't get it.
The paper I'm refering to study from doesn't make sense. Could somebody please explain to me, in easier terms(like what is a tubing and needless canula, etc). Thank you so much!:uhoh21:

hope this is what you are looking for. the only drugs i can think of that you want to dilute would be iv drugs. you can find some of that information on the chart i've linked you into below. if you are looking for the re-constitution directions for some of the antibiotics and steroids you can get that information from www.drugs.com
by looking up the professional's information about a specific drug at their site.
- i'm not sure that this is what you are looking for. this is a chart from a pharmacy policy manual that directs nursing how to administer iv push medications with the specific instructions for certain iv push medications. you might want to keep this list around somewhere, however, because these kinds of charts are often hard to come across when you need one!

Quote from carlita
Does anyone know any good website that explains about syringes and how to mix and dilute different types of drugs? I am having my test-off in four days and I have no clue how to proceed. I'd really appreciate any help.
A little late, but try this site: http://lib2.hacc.edu/nursing/nursing103/
Click under videos on left side bar and choose Medication Administration Video
. Chock full of great information!
