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

• 1000mls
• 125mls/hr

ans (8 hours)
2. 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

• 125mls*15 gtt/ml
•       60 mins

ans 31.25
3. 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)

• 1000mls
• 8hours

( ans 125 mls/hour)
4. how many mls in a tsp
5
5. how many teaspoons are in a tablespoon
3tsp in 1 tbsp
6. how many mls in an oz
30mls in 1 oz
7. how many mls in a tablespoon
15 mls in 1tbsp
8. 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
