• ### Dose Calculation

Sep 27 2021  Anytime a practitioner delivers a medication through an intravenous IV port they must use a flush to push the drug into the IV tubing or a bag of fluid such as normal saline. When calculating infusions it is important to use a drip chamber and know how many drops are needed to administer one mL of the fluid.

• ### Manual IV Calculator

Description This calculator determines the drip rate for a manually regulated IV. Flow rate is the rate a liquid volume is delivered over a period of time. Manually regulated IVs are also known gravity tubing IVs. Notes IV stands for intravenous. IV tubing comes in 10 15 and 20 gtt/mL for macrodrop and 60 gtt/mL for microdrop factors.

Oct 16 2017  Using the infusion strength you know that 1ml would administer 1mg of aminophylline so 22.5ml would administer 22.5mg. We would therefore set the infusion rate as 22.5ml/hour 22.5mg/1 where 1 is the strength of the dosage in ml/mg . Converting dosages. Other complex calculations can give the prescribing dose for dose/kg/min.
