take volume (how many mls in bag i.e. 1000) and break down into mls/hour (need to know how many hours for infusion to do so, we will assume 8 hours) 1000/8 = 125mls/hr
so 125mls goes on top and 60 (time in mins) goes on bottom
multiply that by gtt factor on top
then divide by time on bottom...do math short cut if applicable
infusion rate*gtt factor
time in mins
125mls*15 gtt/ml
60 mins
ans 31.25
IV flow rate (infusion rate) mls per hour
put amount of solution on top
(i.e. 1 liter=1000mls)
put time on bottom (i.e. 8 hours)
1000mls
8hours
( ans 125 mls/hour)

5
how many teaspoons are in a tablespoon
3tsp in 1 tbsp
how many mls in an oz

how many mls in a tablespoon
