  1. Hello nurses and student nurses.. I need some help figuring out the answer to a heparin problem. I'm coming up with an answer but I'm not quite sure if I have it correct. Please guide me... 4. ORDER: Give a heparin drip of 25, 000 units in 500 cc D5W at 9 cc/hr Heparin: Prevents recurrence of thrombosis; use with tPa. Adjust dose to keep APTT at 1.5-2.0 times control. ASA often given with heparin. Protamine reverses heparin. Watch for bleeding. Available is 10,000 units/1 cc QUESTION: How many cc of heparin would be added to the IV? Would this formula work? Desired amount = cc Conc in sum QUESTION: What is the concentration of heparin per cc in the IV bag after it's mixed? QUESTION: How many units of heparin per hour is the patient receiving? QUESTION: If the MD ordered the drip increased by 200 units/hr, what would the IV rate be (cc/hr)?

    UAB Spring 2011 Admission

    It's always good to have a back-up plan with nursing. I applied to UAB with a 3.4 and over 1500 hours of healthcare experience and wasn't accepted. I applied for the fall semester and some say the spring is easier. I'm definitely not saying you won't get in because there is a great possibility you will but I do think it's good to have another plan.

    Gadsden State Program Question

    Gadsden usually gets their letters out pretty quickly...I got mine in like two weeks after the app deadline.
