Med Math help
- 0Apr 22, '13 by PennySI seem to have lost some confidence in my math abilities.
Question is: Administer 1 liter NS at 150/hr. Tubing drip factor is 20gtts/ml.
I solved: 150/60 x 20 = 50gtts/min. Am I wrong?
I know the formula is volume/time x drip factor but the 1 liter in the problem is throwing me. Is it just a red herring?
