Drip rate: 7mcg/kg/min

Pt weight: 100kg

Find out mg/hr?

Total dose: **7mcg/kg/min x 100kg = 700mcg/min **--> convert mcg to mg (dividing the result by 1000)

(700mcg/min)/1000 mcg/mg = **0.7mg/min --> **calculate per hour rate (by multiplying the answer by 60)

(0.7mg/min) x 60 min/hr = __42mg/hr__
