200 mg into 250 cc bag 200 mg. = 200,000 mcg = 80 mcg 250 cc 250 cc 1 cc (60 gtts) 80 mcg. = 40 mcg. 60 gtts X 80 X = 2400 X=30 gtts/min.

1) 60 gtts/min. 2) 10 gtts/min.
Name two effects that Isuprel has on the heart.

What is the other name for Diltiazem
What kind of drug is Elavil?
What is the standard concentration of solution for an infusion of Lidocaine
1 gram in 250 cc
What is the standard concentration of solution for an infusion of Dopamine?
400 mg in 250 cc
You have been ordered to infuse Dopamine at 20 mcg/kg/min to a patient who weighs 132 lbs. At what drip rate will you flow the medication?
132 lbs. / 2.2 = 60 kg. 20 mcg/kg x 60 kg = 1200 mcg total dose 400 mg Dopamine = 400,000 mcg 250 cc 250 cc But wait…..there’s more!
400,000 mcg = 1600 mcg 250 cc 1 cc (60 gtts) 1600 mcg = 1200 mcg (total dose) 60 gtts X gtts 1600 X = 72000 X= 45 gtts/min (whew!) and it’s easier still…..
Remember this one? Dose x weight x 60 1600 So… 20 mcg x 60 kg x 60 1600 72000 = 720 = 90 = 45 gtts/min (it works!) 1600 = 16 = 2
