Even though I could't figure out # 10/ I really appreciate the challenge/ Thank- you
perhaps some one could show me the formular
I have practically memorized all the conversions and formulas for IVs and pumps because at my school you are only allowed to miss 1 question out of 10 or else you fail the ENTIRE program. Tough love when it comes to patient safety.
For question 12 the calculation is:
ml order / total minutes x 60 / 1= ml/hr
Hi, I agree question 2 should be 75...but can someone show me calculation for question 12? I guessed and can't figure it out.
wow i hope they teach this in nursing school.......
good review for drug calculation..thanks!
Great Quiz. I agree with Fatina that question 2 should be 75 mg.
I think the quiz so easy but number 2 question is not correct , the correct is 75 mg
This was tough for me. I'm not "officially" a nurse, I'm a Psych Tech working in the Med Room on Unit 31 of Atascadero State Hospital and I've NEVER done IV infusion rates. Took me a bit (and the use of a calculator), but I did figure it out. +7 and a Perfect Calculator score. Maybe I should go back to school and become a real nurse.
this is great!
Great review! Thanks!
Number two is not wrong, you only move the decimal 2 places. Every hundreth place. Same way with Liters and milliliters.
Question number 2 is wrong ,to convert 0.075 gram to mg the correct answer is 75mg, not 7.5mg. You move the decimal point three places to the right, not two places.
