Question 1 |

An order is written for 500 mL of NS to infuse at 40 gtt/min. How long would it take to infuse the NS if the set delivers 10 gtt/mL?

50 minutes | |

40 minutes | |

100 minutes |

Question 1 Explanation:

10 gtt/mL means 10 drops per mL. So for 500 mL you will get: 10 X 500 = 5,000 drops. The flow rate is 40 gtt/min, which means 40 drops per minute, so divide total drops by 40 to get the number of minutes: 5,000/40 = 125.
