Complete the following advanced IV calculations. The problems and drug orders are presented for practice only, and actual prescribed dosages will vary according to a patient’s age, condition, reaction, additional medications, and other factors.

1. Order: 500 mL D5W with heparin 5000 units IV to infuse at 1000 Units/h. The drop factor is 10 gtt/mL. Calculate the flow rate. Flow rate: __________ gtt/min 2. Order: 1000 mL D5W with heparin 20,000 units IV is to infuse at a rate of 750 Units/h. The drop factor is 12 gtt/mL Calculate the flow rate. Flow rate: __________ gtt/min 3. Order: 0.45% NS 500 mL IV with heparin 10,000 units to infuse at 500 Units/h. The drop factor is 20 gtt/min. Calculate the flow rate. Flow rate: __________ gtt/min

4. Order: 1 L D5 NS with KCL 20 mEq to infuse at a rate of 1 mEq/h. The drop factor is 20 gtt/mL. Calculate the flow rate. Flow rate: __________ gtt/min 5. Order: Lidocaine 2 g IV in 1000 mL D5W to infuse at a rate of 3 mg/min by infusion pump. Calculate the flow rate. Flow rate: ___________ mL/hr 6. Order: Nitroglycerin 100 mg IV in 500 mL D5W to infuse at a rate of 30 mcg/min. Calculate the flow rate. Flow rate: ___________ mL/hr

A patient’s IV order for lidocaine states that he should receive an IV bolus of 100 mg over 2 minutes using a supply of 2% lidocaine. 7. What is the supply dosage of the lidocaine in mg/mL? __________ mg/mL __________ mL

8. How many milliliters will you administer for this order using the available supply?

An ICU patient weighing 70 kg has an order for dobutamine 5mcg/kg/min to be administered IV and regulated by infusion pump. The supply of dobutamine is 500 mg in 500 mL D5W. 9. Compute the number of micrograms and the number of milligrams that the patient will receive. mcg/min __________ mg/min __________

10. Based on an order for 350 mcg/min or 0.35 mg/min, compute the volume of mL infused per minute. mL/min ______________ 11. Compute the flow rate in ml/h. Flow rate __________ mL/h
