This tutorial shows you the easiest way to calculate an IV drip rate. Using this 3 step formula, if you use the correct units in each step, you will get the right answer every time.
Flow rate = ml/hour (varies depending on question)
Drop factor = gtt/ml (varies depending on question)
Time conversion = 1 hour/60 minutes (always the same for this method)
