1. IV calculation

I may be over thinking it. Is the patient getting the fluids in 4 hours.. So it will still run over 8 hours? Or is it just running for 4 hours?
2. IV calculation

The patient is receiving 150ml/hr x 8 hours and then is to be switched to 1/2 NS 500ml in 4 hours. What is the total number of mls that patient received in IV solution? What is the rate of flow in ml/hr for 1/2 NS to be set? 1700ml However I'm not too sure about the answer for the second part...
3. IV calculation NG losses

500/11.25 = 44.44 ml/hour (44.44 x 10) / 60 = 7ggt/min Correct? Thanks I was a bit confused with all the info provided.
4. IV calculation NG losses

Is it not 1L over 11.25 hour? Are we just calculating the NG loss of 500ml?
5. IV calculation NG losses

Order: Replaced NG losses with 20KCL in 1L of R/L over 11.25 hours. The patient on nights drained 500 ccs of NG losses. (ggt/min 10) What is the rate of infusion in ggt/min and rate of infusion mls/ hr I have no idea where to start.. help!
6. Heparin IV question

Oops yes 20! I was thinking 25000 units for some reason. Yes I wasn't sure if the drop factor was important in this question..
7. Heparin IV question

Heparin 20,000 units/500 ccs of D5W. to infuse at 800 units/hr. The drip factor is 60ggts/cc. What is the rate of infusion at mls/hr? 20000units / 500ml = 800units/hr / x I got 16mls/hr Is that correct?
