calculate remaining infusion time
 put volume in mls (i.e. 1000 mls)
 over mls per hour remaining
 (ex 125mls/hr)
ans (8 hours)

calculate gtts per min
 take volume (how many mls in bag i.e. 1000) and break down into mls/hour (need to know how many hours for infusion to do so, we will assume 8 hours) 1000/8 = 125mls/hr
 so 125mls goes on top and 60 (time in mins) goes on bottom
 multiply that by gtt factor on top
 then divide by time on bottom...do math short cut if applicable
 infusion rate*gtt factor
 time in mins
ans 31.25

IV flow rate (infusion rate) mls per hour
 put amount of solution on top
 (i.e. 1 liter=1000mls)
 put time on bottom (i.e. 8 hours)
( ans 125 mls/hour)


how many teaspoons are in a tablespoon
3tsp in 1 tbsp

how many mls in an oz
30mls in 1 oz

how many mls in a tablespoon
15 mls in 1tbsp

how to set up med conversion desired over have method if you have to convert grams to mg...mg to grams etc
do 3 part square method
