Expert Answer

Step 1

Given,

Medication provided = 100 mg/h

The label on the IV bad reads = 5.0 g/1000 mL

The IV administration set delivers = 15 gtts/mL = 15 drops/mL

The label on the IV bad reads 5.0g/1000mL. This means that:

5 g in
1000 mL
5000 mg in
(1 g
1000 mg)
1000 mL
1000 mL
x 100 mg 20 mL
100 mg will in
5000 mg

5 g in 1000 mL 5000 mg in (1 g 1000 mg) 1000 mL 1000 mL x 100 mg 20 mL 100 mg will in 5000 mg

Step 2

Since medication provided per hour is 100 mg, and 100 mg = 20 mL, therefor in 20 mL should be infused each hour.

Step 3

Now, the current drip rate is 20 mL per hour.

Given, the IV administration set delivers 15 gtts/mL, where the ...
