Order: oxytocin 10 units IV in 500 mL NS. Infuse 4 milliunits/min for 20 min, followed by 6 milliunits/min for 20 min. Use electronic infusion pump. Rate: __________ mL/h for first 20 min Rate: __________ mL/h for next 20 min

Answer

Alright class, the instruction is to administer oxytocin 10 units IV in 500 mL NS at a rate of 4 milliunits/min for the first 20 minutes, followed by 6 milliunits/min for the next 20 minutes using an electronic infusion pump. The rate for the first 20 minutes is 12 mL/h and the rate for the next 20 minutes is 18 mL/h. To calculate the rate for the first 20 minutes, we can use the formula: Rate (mL/h) = (Dose (units/h) × Volume (mL)) / Concentration (units).
