IV calculations-medical math

Heparin is to infuse at 9ml/hr. the IV solution is 25,000units heparin in 250cc D5w. what is the hourly dosage? what is the drip rate?

asked by joyce
  1. 25,000 units/250 mL = 100 units/mL.
    9 mL x (100 units/mL) = 900 units/hr.
    You should be able to finish. Check my thinking.
