My instructor gave me this sheet that states what it is. I hope this helps.
The Nursing Math Titration is for you the nurse to calculate.
Some drugs given IV are potent and may affect the patient quickly. Drugs are given by titrating the dosage. To ensure that you the nurse give the proper dosage of admininstration you must know how to calculate, an IV infusion pump is used. These machines are calibrated to deliver a specific amount in ml/hr.
You the nurse is responsible for solving MCG/KG/MIN or HR, MCG/MIN or HOUR and INFUSION RATE.
You will have an exam on Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2008 promptly at 815am. Anyone showing up later than that will not be able to take the exam. And will receive a grade of Zero.
This is the only thing she gave us. One of my classmates asked her if she can stay after class to show us. She replied with that's not something that she does. We went to the nursing tutor. After the second day with the tutor. The tutor told us that our instructor requested that she does not teach us titration. That we needed to dig for ourselves.
I have been doing research here and on the internet. I really don't get it.
I really appreciate any assistance. If you read my previous thread, I cannot afford to fail any exam. I am suppose to graduate in less than 14 weeks.
