    Medication Calculation Help

    Hi all! I need help with a medication calculation. If possible can you show how we get there so i can use it as my example? My patient has an order for heparin infusion of 1200 units/hr. Pharmacy sends me a bag labeled: Heparin 25,000 units in 250 mL of NS. Pump is unavailable and IV tubing a drop factor of 60 gtt/mL. What would I set as my flow rate. Thank you in advance for your help! Carhow72
