Really, didn’t mean to. Did you see the movie with Bob Hope  the other night on saying the truth for one day?

Its just I’m doing a little math everyday now until our test. So – Maybe a little math.

These math problems are on the volume of diluent and the flow rate for the infusion. (round mL to tenth if over 1)

1. An IV of an antibiotic of 750 mg in 3 mL was ordered by the doctor to be diluted to a total of 25 mL of NS to infuse over 40 minutes.
What is the volume of diluent  __________ mL
What is the flow rate ___________ mL/hr
2. 1.5 grams/2mL of an antibiotic is to be diluted to a total of 40 mL of NS and administered over 40 minutes.
What is the volume of diluent  __________ mL
What is the flow rate ___________ mL/hr
3. Over 35 minutes, a dosage of 20 mg in 2 mL has been ordered and must be diluted to 30 mL.
What is the volume of diluent  __________ mL
What is the flow rate ___________ mL/hr
4. 500,000 U of an antibiotic preparation with a volume of 4 mL is ordered by the doctor. It must be diluted to 50 ML D5 ½ NS to infuse in 1 hr.
What is the volume of diluent  __________ mL
What is the flow rate ___________ mL/hr
5. 200 mg in 4 mL is to be diluted to 50 mL and administered over 70 minutes.
What is the volume of diluent  __________ mL
What is the flow rate ___________ mL/hr
6. A dosage of 25 mg in 5 mL is ordered diluted to 40 mL and needs to be administered in 50 min.
What is the volume of diluent  __________ mL
What is the flow rate ___________ mL/hr
