# Question 1546

Question Answered step-by-step SPECIFY UNITS in answers. gtt/min and mL/hr must be rounded to thenearest whole number. Dosages <1 mL round to hundredths. Amounts >1 mL round to tenths. Intermediate steps using kg/BSA round to the hundredths. All other medical amounts round to the tenth. 1 kg = 2.2 lbs Give Infusion times as hours & minutes, e.g. “15 hours, 23 min ” 1. The order is for 675 mL D5 ½ NaCl to run in 8 hours. Set calibration is 20 gtt/mL. a. Calculate flow rate in in mL/hr. b. Calculate flow rate gtt/min. 2. The order reads “Infuse 150 mL in 110 minutes”. You are using a microdrop set. a. Calculate flow rate in mL/hr. b. Give the flow rate in gtt/min. c. It started at 2317. When will it be complete? (3 pts)3. Infuse 15 mcg/min from a 10 mg/250 mL solution. Calculate the flow rate in mL/hr. 4. The order is for 300 mg of antibiotic three times daily for a patient weighing 150 lb. It is to be given in a 125 mL IVPB to infuse in 2 hours, repeated every 8 hours. The dosage safe range is 10-15 mg/kg/day in 3 divided doses. a. What is the appropriate dosage range for one dose for this patient? b. Assess the order: Is the order safe? Explain how you know. c. The medication is available as 165 mg/mL. Determine the volume of medication needed to create the IV. d. The infusion will be given on a pump. What rate will you set the pump at (mL/hr)?
