if a gastro tube feeding is running at 55ml per hour, in two hours, 110 ml input?

Posted

I am in my first semester, if a gastro tube feeding is running at 55ml per hour, then in two hours, 110 ml would be in the input. This is a continuous feeding with no shut offs in the two hours. Is this correct?

Well if you wanted to run 100ml in 1 hr it would be set at 100ml/hr. If you wanted 100ml to run over 2 hr you would run it at 50ml/hr. I hope this helps. are you given a drop rate or anything else

This is correct. Make sure you account for your flushes if there are any.:)
