<title>Adam's IV drip rate calculator</title>
<h1>Welcome to Adam's I.V. Drip Rate Calculator</h1>
This form is to be used on non-weight based IV fluid drip rate calculations. <br>
The formula used is ( VTBI / TTBI ) x Drip Set. The answer will give you how many gtts/min to infuse a.k.a the drip rate.</p>
<li>VTBI = Volume to be infused (ml).</li>
<li>TTBI = Time to be infused (min). <u>Note for nurses</u>: There are 60 minutes in 1 hour.</li>
<li>Drip Set = Most drip sets show, on the packaging, how many drops of fluid it takes to equal 1 ml.<br> The exception is pump tubing, but if you are using a pump and the tubing that goes with that pump, then you do not need to figure out the rate anyway! That's what the pump is for. </li>
<p>(VTBI / min) x Drip set<p>
