Your answers are highlighted below.
The physician has ordered a Fentanyl drip for sedation for a patient on the ventilator. The drip comes as 1mg/100ml NS. The dose rate is 100mcg/hr, titrate as needed. How many ml/hr will this drip infuse?
100 ml/hr
1 ml/hr
10 ml/hr
20 ml/hr
Question 1 Explanation: 
The correct answer is C. The fentanyl drip has 1 mg/100ml. 1mg is equal to 1000mcg giving you 1000mcg in a 100 ml bag of NS. 1000mcg/100ml= 10mcg per ml meaning there is 10mcg of fentanyl for every 1ml. 10ml will contain 100mcg of fentanyl so the drip will run at 10ml/hr
