Complete the following advanced IV calculations. The problems and drug orders are presented for practiceonly, and actual prescribed dosages will vary according to a patient’s age, condition, reaction, additionalmedications, and other factors.Compute the “watch count” flow rate for the following questions.
1. 1 L D
W with 10,000 Units heparin to infuse at 1000 Units/hThe drop factor is 20 gtt/mL. Flow rate: __________ gtt/min2. 1000 mL NS with 10,000 Units heparin to infuse at 750 Units/hThe drop factor is 12 gtt/mL. Flow rate: __________ gtt/min3. One of your patients has an IV that is flowing at a rate of 10 gtt/min. The IV bag contains a solution of 500mL NS with 20,000 Units of heparin. The drop factor is 15 gtt/mL.How many units is the patient receiving per 24 hours? __________ Units/24h
Compute the answers to the following questions based on this information.
A patient’s IV order for lidocaine states that he should receive an IV bolus of 50 mg over 1 minute, using a supplyof 1% lidocaine.4.
