Your patient is on a Lasix drip at 5mg/hr. The patient is also receiving 40mg Lasix IVP q12h. The lasix drip is 100mg/100ml and the pushes are 40mg/4ml. How many total mg of Lasix and mls of fluid is the patient receiving every 24hrs as a result of the drip and the pushes?
125ml/ 150mg
122ml/ 175mg
128ml/ 200mg
125ml/ 175 mg
Question 1 Explanation: 
The correct answer is C. Lasix drip is 100mg/100ml = 1mg/ml. The patient is receiving 5mg/hr which is 5ml/hr. 5 x 24 (hours in a day) =120mg/day and 120ml/day. The pushes are 40mg twice a day which makes the total mgs for the pushes 80mg/day. 120mg + 80mg= 200mg/day. The mls from the pushes are 4mls x 2 each day which makes another 8ml. 120 + 8 = 128ml/day.
