D10W IV Drip question
A patient was started on a drip of D10W from a 500 ml bag at 1400. The micro-drip (60gtt/ml) administration device was set to deliver 30gtt/min. If the patient is administered the entire bag, how much dextrose will they receive?
This question could be re-worded like this:
How much dextrose is in 500mL of D10W
1) D10W is 10% Dextrose, so you can use a proportions equation:
------- = -------
2) Solve for X, and that's your answer
