Have a friend studying to be a nurse, and she's having some trouble understanding some math concepts regarding IV rates and such. I tried to figure it out as well, but never end up with the correct answer. Any help you guys could offer would be much appreciated.
Here's the question.
240cc of 0.9 percent sodium chloride needs to be given within 6 hours at a rate of 40gtt/min. Which other IV set can be used?
According to her teacher, a rate of 60gtt can be used as well, but for the life of me, I can't figure out how to come to 60gtt. Any ideas guys?
