You are correct again but they asked for the drops per minute, not hour. what would the answer be then?but b.. i didnt.
b.) If no infusion pump is available, the nurse will need to use microdrip tubing, which delivers 60 drops per ml. How many drops per minute should be administered???
I think the answer is 600drops/hr.. but im not sure.
should the bold word be grams?3.) MOrphine sulfate 2mg IV push is ordered to relieve shortness of breath in a patient with chronic lung disease. It is supplied as grains 1/4 pr ml. How many mls should the nurse administer?
You are correct yet again you don't have a problem. why are you uncomfortable?4.) A patient is recieving 250 ml normal saline over 4 hours, using tubing with a drop factor of 10 drops per ml./ How many drops per minute should be delivered?
250ml/4hr = 62.5 ml/hr
62.5/60 = 1.0416ml/minute * 10 drops =
10.416 drops per minute
