Question

The IV pump is infusing at 25 gtt/min. There are 600 mL to be infused and the set calibration is 10 gtt/mL. How many hours will the IV fluid run?

4 hours

5 hours

6 hours

8 hours

Answer #1

Answer:-

The pump infusion at = 25 gtt /min

To be infused volume in ML = 600ml

Set calibration is = 10 gtt/ ml

25 gtt = 1.25 ml / min

10 gtt = 0.5 ml ( 10 divide by 0.5 )

600 ml = 10 multiply by 600 divide by 0.5 and (multiply by 10 because we remove decimal of 0.5 ) = 12000

25 gtt /ml = 1.25 ml

12000 divided by 25 = 480 divided by 60

So answer is = 8 Hours

An Iv infusing at 30 drops/min. The DF is 20. How many mL/hr are
being infused at this rate?

An IV of 500 mL ½ NSS is to be infused over 2 hours. The IV
tubing has a drop factor of 10 gtt/mL. Calculate the gtt/min flow
rate. Round to the whole number.

Calculate the gtt/min flow rate for the IV fluids under manual
control; An IV of 1000 ml 0.9% sodium chloride is to be infused
over 8 hours. The IV tubing has a drop factor of 20 gtt/ml

14. A bag of 0.9% NS (normal Saline) is infusing at the rate of
20 gtt/min. The infusion set is calibrated for a drop factor of 15
gtt/mL. how many mL of solution will infuse during an 8-hour
shift?

An IV is running at a rate of 25 gtt/min. It has a
volume of 500 mL. Tubing drop factor is 15. How long will the IV
run?

600 mL of antibiotic is to be infused over the 180 minutes by an
infusion pump. You will set the pump to administer _____ ml/hr

The doctor orders 800ml of an 0.9m/v% NaCl IV to be infused in 9
hours. You have 15gtt/ml IV tubes available. What should the IV
rate be set at in gtt/ml? How many grams of NaCl did you give the
patient?

A 500 mL IV is set to infuse at 60 mL/hr using 20 gtt/mL tubing.
The IV was started at 1000.
a. Calculate the completion time for this IV. State answer in
both standard time and military time.
b. Calculate the original gtt/min rate.
c. After 4 hours, you notice that 150 mL of IV solution is left
in the bag. Recalculate the rate in gtt/min for the remaining
solution to finish on time.
d. Determine the percentage of change...

An IV solution of 260 mL at a drip rate of 5 gtt/min using a
tubing factor of 20 gtt/mL has been ordered to be initiated at
0015. Calculate the infusion time. (Round your answer to the
nearest tenth of an hour.)

The doctor orders 5 gram of a drug in 500 mL of D-5-W IV to be
infused at 6 mcg/kg/min. The patient weighs 130 lbs. The drop
factor is 60 gtt/mL.
a. Calculate the flow rate in mL/h.
b. Calculate the flow rate in gtt/min.
