Intravenous Math Review
1. Give 800 ml of 2/3 and 1/3 intravenous fluid at
75 ml/hr. Calculate the completion time.
2. At 0700 you find 650ml remaining in the patient’s IV. It is infusing at 125ml/hr.
When will it be completely infused?
3. Doctor’s order reads: Ampicillin 1g IV q6h. The label reads Ampicillin 1 gm mix with
3.5ml of sterile water for a concentration of 250mg/ml. How many ml of solution will you
give?
4. The order reads give 1500 ml of Normal Saline over the next 24 hours. The drip factor is
15gtt/ml. What is the drip rate?
5. The order reads give Cefuroxime 750mg q 8 h. The label on the bag reads
750mg/500ml to be infused over 4 hours. The drip factor is 10gtts/ml. What is the drip
rate?
6. Give 500 ml of D5W over 3.75 hrs. The drip factor is 60 gtt/ml. What is the drip rate?

7. The order reads Piperacillin 2 g every 8 hours. The label on the bag reads 2gm/100ml
Normal Saline to be infused over 30 mins. The drip factor is 15 gtt/ml. What is the drip
rate?
8. The order reads 2000 units/h of Heparin via continuous infusion. The solution is
