We have to do these for our beginning algebra class.. and they were origionally for the nursing program!!
I dont understand how to doo them at all.. And i think it's really stupid but anyway..
It doesnt help im not farmiliar with ANY of the terms..
2. Heparin sodium, 1,000 units per hour is ordered for a woman with a Blood clot in her leg. It is supplied as 50,000 units in 500ml of dextrose and water.
a.) How manly mls per hour should be set on an infusion pump? - I got this part done.. it's
100units/1 hr * 500 ml/50,000 units = 10ml/hr.
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.
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?
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
and im not sure if this is right either.
