Rate of Administration Some stated that they give all IV push medications over two to five minutes, and therefore don't need to look up or know the specific rate for each drug. Others reported that they administer all IV push medications in less than two minutes.

## How is bolus rate calculated?

First, convert grams to milligrams: 2 g → 2000 mg. Next, determine the concentration: 2000 mg per 500 ml = (2000/500) X (mg/ml) = 4 mg/ml. Since you're using a 60 drop set, you multiply your VTBI by the drip factor. Then divide by the concentration of 4 mg/ml.

## How can I calculate percentage?

1. How to calculate percentage of a number. Use the percentage formula: P% * X = Y

1. Convert the problem to an equation using the percentage formula: P% * X = Y.
2. P is 10%, X is 150, so the equation is 10% * 150 = Y.
3. Convert 10% to a decimal by removing the percent sign and dividing by 100: 10/100 = 0.
