I have a question that is quite embarrassing. I am in my 3rd semester of nursing school
. I have always excelled in math. I was taught only once about Iv dosage probs and I passed. However, this tiny simple part of the problem I cannot seem to grasp. I have worked all gravity and pump rates. I got the correct drops per minute correct. Now the embarrassing part. I cannot figure out how to get the amt of drips in a minute. For example I have 23 gtts/min. How do I determine to get the drops to match my answer. I know some people do it the whole min but our instructors require us to find the rate of how many drips per 15 sec or something like that. Then we have to count them a whole minute after. I know this is simple. I feel foolish but I am better with difficult probs rather than simple probs. Any help will be greatly appreciated.!
