You first need to find out what drop factor you are working with (how large the drops are). They normally range from about 10-20 gtt per mL (macrodrop) or 60 gtt per mL (microdrop). Your question cannot be answered until you know how many drops it would take to add up to your full 17 mL IV administration.

It depends on what is advised by the nurse or doctor. Generally, intravenous re-hydration is done repeatedly over time, versus just done once. Plus, having those fluids being continuously infused into the body allows the ability to inject medications as needed. This depends on the extent of the dehydration before the therapy started.
