# Practice Questions

This activity contains 10 questions.

## An IV of 0.9% N.S. is infusing at a flow rate of 45 mL/hr. Calculate the flow rate in microdrops per minute.

 15 µgtt/min 4.5 µgtt/min 45 µgtt/min 90 µgtt/min

## A patient is receiving an infusion at a rate of 100 mL every 35 minutes. How many microdrops per minute is the patient receiving?

 35 µgtt/min 350 µgtt/min 171 µgtt/min 342 µgtt/min

## A 15 year old boy is scheduled for an appendectomy in 2 hours. An I.V. of 1000 mL of Ringer’s Lactate has been started. The flow rate is 125 mL/hour. Drop factor 15 gtt = 1 mL. Calculate the flow rate in drops per minute.

 17 gtt/min 31 gtt/min 12 gtt/min 3 gtt/min

## A patient with end stage renal disease (ESRD) is on limited fluid intake. An I.V. pump has been coded at 50 mL/h. How many milliliters per minute is the patient receiving?

 0.8 mL 0.1 mL 5 mL 0.5 mL

## Physician’s Order: 500 mL 5%D/W KVO at flow rate of 15 mL/hr. Calculate the flow rate in microdrops per minute.

 50 µgtt/min 15 µgtt/min 30 µgtt/min 75 µgtt/min

## Order: Nipride 100mg in 500 mL 5% D/W, IV infuse a flow rate of 18 µgtt/min. How many milliliters per hour is the patient receiving IV?

 18 mL/h 180 mL/h 1.8mL/h 36mL/h

## An I.V. of 0.45% NS is infusing at a rate of 80 µgtt/min. How many mL will the patient receive in 15 minutes?

 80 mL 15 mL 20mL 8mL

## The patient has an I.V. of 500 mL 0.9%NS infusing at a rate of 17 gtt/min with a drop factor of 15 drops/mL. How many milliliters per hour is your patient receiving?

 68 mL/h 22 mL/h 136 mL/h 44 mL/h

## Order: 250 mL D5W in 2 h. Calculate the rate of flow in µgtt/min.

 12 µgtt/min 50 µgtt/min 125 µgtt/min 25µgtt/min

## Order: 1000 mL D5W in 10 hours I.V. The original rate was 75 microdrops per minute. When the nurse assessed the infusion 500 milliliters had infused in 4 hours. Recalculate the flow rate in microdrops per minute.

 75 µgtt / min 90 µgtt / min 83 µgtt / min 42 µgtt /min
