Please assist me with a Pharmacology question.
The HCP has ordered Cefazolin
500 mg IVPB every 6 hours. The pharmacy sends Cefazolin 500 mg in 50 mL of D5/W and it is to run over 1 hour via aninfusion pump. The drop factor of the IVPB set is 60 gtt per mL.
What is the hourly rate? -------mL/hr
What would the hourly rate be if the HCP ordered Cefazolin to run over 30 minutes? ----------mL/hr
Thanks for your response!
