IV Solutions

Posted by Laura on February 13, 2010

I have been working on IV information and was wondering of the osmolarity of the solutions. Especially with the D5W turning hypotonic in the body as the body pulls the dextrose leaving only free water behind with 0 osmolarity. So I made this chart. Here is  a good site for calculating osmolarity of fluids with additives http://www.globalrph.com/
