Hi Guys, I have a question about heparin bolus and heparin continous infusion. Is the bolus give as an IV push and then a bag 250ml is hung just like a regular IV pump? Is a bolus concentration aways in 1000U per 1ml? When running an heparin infusion will the order always tell you a starting dose of U/kg/hr ? I just wish I had a chance to watch one done. Thanks in advance!

here is an older thread that shows this type of problem and how the drug calculation is made to work it out.
