If there is a will, there is a way.

Finally, I learnt how to set the IV drip rate thingy. The staff nurse had been a great help.

Say you were to administer 6oml of fluid in an hour to an adult. [cause in children, you don’t set this up manually, you’d have to use a machine]

So in 1 hour there’s 60 minutes, therefore in 1 minute you’d have to give 1 ml of fluids.Behind the IV pack, there is stated how many drops is euivalent to 1 ml. So, you would adjust necessarily using that rolling thing. Yayyyyyyyyyyy… I wish I knew this before the OSCEs last year.
