Volume/Time - IV mL Rate Questions
Example: Infuse 250 mL over the next 120 minutes by infusion pump.
Convert 120 minutes to hours.
min → hr ( ÷ by 60 )
120 min ÷ 60 = 2 hr
Example: Ordered 1000 mL D5W IV to infuse in 10 hours by infusion pump.
Question (17): (From Ngee Ann Polytechnics Dosage Calculation Worksheet)
ORDER: I/V Hartmann's Solution 500 mL over 4 hours via infusion pump.
Question (21): (From Ngee Ann Polytechnics Dosage Calculation Worksheet)
ORDER: I/V Hartmann's as per Parkland formula 4 mL/kg/%burns
Body Weight: 60 kg; %Burns: 30%
Volume to be infused over 24 hours: _______ mL; over first 8 hours: _______ mL
This is a Dosage By Weight Question. 60 kg is the weight in kg, 4 mL/kg/%Burns and 30 %Burns is a dosage in terms of mL.
The first half of this amount is delivered within 8 hours from the burn incident.
