84. The IV tubing delivers a drip rate of 10 gtts per ml. What is the drip rate for 1000 mL in 12 hours?_________ ? gtts/min = 10 gtts/1 mL X 1000 mL/12 hrs X 1 hr/60 mins = 1000/72 = 14 gtts/min 85. The IV is 1,000 mL. What is the amount to be given per hour if the fluid is to be infused in 12 hours?__________ ? mL/hr = 1000 mL/12 hrs = 83.3 mL/hr 86. Give 500 ml IV over 6 hours. The tubing delivers 20gtts per mL. What is the rate drip rate per minute?__________ ? gtts/min = 20 gtts/1 mL X 500 mL/6 hrs X 1 hr/60 mins = 1000/36 = 28 gtts/min 87. If the maximum safe dose for a medication is 6 mg/kg/day. What is the maximum

safe dose for a child who weighs 17 kg?__________ ? mg/day = 6 mg/kg/day X 17 kg/pt = 102 mg/day 88. Give 200 ml IV over 3 hours. The tubing drop factor is 15. What is the drop rate per minute?___________________ ? gtts/min = 15 gtts/1 mL X 200 mL/3 hrs X 1 hr/60 mins = 300/18 = 17 gtts/min 89. Give 60 ml IV over 1 hour. The tubing drop factor is 60 gtts/mL What is the drop rate per minute?__________ ? gtts/min = 60 gtts/1 mL X 60 mL/1 hr X 1 hr/60 mins = 360/6 = 90. A patient with pneumonia weighs 26.9 kg. If the recommended dose for a specific antibiotic is 75 mg/kg/day, what is the recommended daily dose for this patient?__________ ? mg/day = 75 mg/kg/day X 26.9 kg/(pt) = 2,017.5 mg/day 91. Give Heparin 2000 U sub-q from a vial labeled 10,000 U/mL. How many mL will you give?__________ ? mL = 1 mL/10,000 units X 2000 units/Heparin = 2000/10,000 = 0.2 mL 92. Give 40 mg of Lasix (furosemide) IV. Available as 10mg/mL Give each 10 mg over 60 seconds. How much will you give? How long will it take you to administer the drug?_________ ? mL = 1 mL/10 mg X 40 mg/Lasix = 40/10 = 4 mL 93. Give Librium (chlordiazepoxide) 25 mg. When the 50 mg vial is diluted with 5 ml of sterile diluent, each mL equals 5 mg. How many mL will you give?__________ ? mL = 1 mL/5 mg X 25 mg/(drug) = 25/5 = 5 mL

many mL will you give?__________ ? mL = 1 mL/0.2 mg X 1 mg/1000 mcg X 200 mcg/(drug) = 2/2 = 1 mL 95. Give Sparine (promazine HCl) 12.5 mg. Available as 0.025 g/mL. How many mL will you give?__________ ? mL = 1 mL/0.025 g X 1 g/1000 mg X 12.5 mg/(drug) = 12.5/25 = 0.5 mL 96. Give Pronestyl (procainamide HCl) 200 mg. The drug is available as 0.5 g/ mL. How many mL will you give?__________ ? mL = 1 mL/0.5 g X 1 g/1000 mg X 200 mg/(drug) = 2/5 = 0.4 mL 97. Give Mysoline (primidone) 0.1 g po from a bottle labeled Mysoline 250 mg/5mL. How many mL will you give?__________ ? mL = 5 mL/250 mg X 1000 mg/1 g X 0.1 g/(drug) = 50/25 = 2 mL 98. If the maximum safe dose for a medication is 5 mg/kg/day, what is the maximum safe dose for a child who weighs 12.4 kg?__________ ? mg/day = 5 mg/kg/day X 12.4 kg/(child) = 62 mg/day 99. Give Elixir Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 10 mg from a bottle labeled Elixir Benadryl 12.5 mg/5mL. How many mL will you give?__________ ? mL = 5 mL/12.5 mg X 10 mg/(drug) = 50/12.5 = 4 mL 100. Give Declomycin (demeclocycline) 0.3 g q12h. Each capsules is labeled Declomycin 150 mg. How many capsules will you give with each dose? ? capsules = 1 caps/150 mg X 1000 mg/1 g X 0.3 g/(drug) = 30/15 = 2 capsules
