Can someone give me a grounded formula that will work for all IV problems?
I know i just posted one before, but i still do not undertsand the formula.
My dosage and calculations book tells me V/T*drip factor=rate
I plug this problem in
You have a new order for 10000 U Hep. in 500 ml NS to infuse at 750 U/hr. The drop factor is 60/gtt/ml. What is the flow rate in gtt/min.
So if i use V/T * drip = rate i get this
500ml/60 minutes * 60gtt/1ml this equals 500 ... that is way too high. What am i doing wrong?
