    Thanks I just saw it on Walmart's website...was order Davis Drug guide and I wanted to know if this would be a great investment as well...so you say this book is a great tool for careplans? This is not by Ackley (which I have already) this is by Doenges, Murr and Moorhouse

    Can you unscramble...

    I couldn't figure it out bc I know the conversion for tsp is 5ml = 1 tsp and that cancels the tsp and that 1mg=1000mcg but i couldn't figure out how to cancel the mg to get the answer in mls...the answer is 1ml...but how is the set up?

    Med Calc..Show me set up...Please!!

    Thanks Shaas...I was reading too much in question #1 but for question #2 I did it the way you have it set up and got the answer marked wrong...106.5 ml/hr was suppose to be the answer. IDK maybe the answer key is wrong but thanks for your help these questions are worded tricky!
  15. #1 Zofran 0.15 mg/kg IVPB 30 minutes before chemotherapy. The label on the vial states to dilute the drug in 50 ml of D5W and infuse over 15 minutes. Calculate the flow rate for a patient who weighs 55 kg, when the drop factor is 10 gtts/ml. #2 Hycantin 3.25 mg IV daily for 5 days. Repeat every 21 days. The label on the vial reads 4 mg/4 ml. Directions state to withdraw the dose and add to the 50 mls of D5W and infuse over 30 minutes. Calculate the flow rate in ml/hr.

    Grades don't matter! Are you sure??????

    Im starting clinicals next month and I'm going in with a 3.6 GPA...I want to maintain that through out but sometimes it is hard to obtain that "A" that you want so to those who have previously posted and are getting "A"'s tell me how you study so I can get A's too. I've heard all the sayings (C= Continue, C= degree, C=RN,ect) and I feel like as long as you are putting in the effort and you still get a "C" then you shouldn't beat yourself up and neither should anyone else but to the slackers who cruise to get by then they deserve the grade they get. In all grades do matter....so tell me how to maintain my current GPA.
