Best Answer

I am not offering this as a medical answer, but I believe the math is as follows. 100 units = 100,000 milliunits. Diluted 10:1 this makes 1,000,000 milliunits of solution. Since you want 50 milliunits of pitocin per minute, this would be 500 milliunits of solution per minute, or 0.5ml (1/2 ml)per minute.

Q: What rate in ml do you administer pitocin if you have a concentration of 100 units in 1000ml of fluid and you want to infuse 50 milliunits per minute?

50ml Way to find: 5/100 * 1000ml

1000mL = 1L For every 1000mL we have 1 L. So- 400mL x 1L/1000mL = 0.4L

No

1L = 1000mL 0.36L x 1000mL/L = 360mL

1L = 1000mL 600mL x 1L/1000mL = 0.6L

1.5L is greater than 1000ml because 1 liter is equal to 1000ml. So, 1.5L would be equal to 1500ml, which is greater than 1000ml.

1L = 1000mL 1000mL x 3/4 = 750mL

1000mL = 1L 8.23L * 1000mL/L = 8230mL Save
