HLTH 1210/LPN-C IV Calculation Practice Problems II
Manual IV Flow Rate Formula: volume of infusion (in mL) x drop factor = Flow rate time of infusion (in minutes) (in gtt/min) Electronic IV Flow Rate Formula: total milliliters (mL) = Flow rate total hours (h) (in mL/h)

Practice Problems (cont’d)
Ratio/Proportion Formula: Cross-Multiply and Solve for “X” = =
