Amount in IV Fluid Questions
Given a volume of IV fluid and a dosage expressed in percent, what is the mass of a particular dosage?Formula:

x Volume (mL) = Y (Dosage Amount in g) 
Example: Calculate the amount of dextrose in 1000 mL D5W.

x Volume (mL) = Y (Dosage Amount in g) 

x 1000 mL = 50 g 
Example: Calculate the amount of sodium chloride in 2000 mL NS.
Recall NS is 0.9% NaCl (sodium chloride)

x Volume (mL) = Y (Dosage Amount in g) 

x 2000 mL = 18 g
