Need help with math problems!

  1. Pitocin 15units IV in 250mL LR. Begin a continuous infusion at the rate of 1 milliunit/min. What is the rate in ml/hr?

    NS 3000mL IV for 24h, limit total IV fluids to 3000mL daily, penicillin G potassium 1,000,000 units IV PB q4h in 100mL NS to run for 30 minutes. Drop factor is 10gtt/ml. Configure IVPB flow rate in gtt/min and IV primary flow rate in gtt/min.

    Anyone that can help me work through these problems would be greatly appreciated!

    How many units per mL, then how many milliunits per mL to start...

    For the second you have a lot of extra information there. Start with figuring out what you need to know to get to the answer. Start by finding mL/hr and go from there.
