Presentation Transcript
slide3
You carry only one injectable drug which may normally be a color other than clear.1) What drug is it?2) What color?
slide9
You have been ordered to give 8 mg. of drug Alpha 1. It is supplied in 2 mg/ml. How many ml should you give?
slide10
4 ml.

2 mg. = 8 mg.

1 ml. X

2X = 8;

X = 4 ml.

slide16

1) coma (decreased LOC)2) convulsions3) caustic/corrosive ingestion4) <1mL/Kg hydrocarbons5) cyclic OD Use with caution:1) cardiac disease2) last 1/2 of pregnancy

slide26
None. AHA recommends using IO if IV access is not easily obtained. All drugs may be given via IO.
slide30
Later diagnosis will be more difficult since IM injections will elevate the same serum enzymes as a MI
slide35
You have just placed 200 mg of drug Beta 2 into a 250 cc bag. Your orders are to infuse 40 mcg/min. How many gtts/min will you give? No peeking!
slide36
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.

slide41
Name a side effect of Lidocaine which indicates that too large a dose has been given, and that the infusion of Lidocaine should be stopped.
slide43
If you want to give a patient 60 mL of D5W in one hour, how many drops per minute should you give:1) using mini-drip2) using regular drip
slide46

Increased conductionIncreased RateIncreased Strength of contraction so:Increased cardiac outputIncreased myocardial O2 demandIncreased ventricular irritability

slide69

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?

slide70
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!

slide71
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…..

slide72
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
