Order: D5 1/4 NS 240 ml IV at 10 ml/h to infuse over 24 hours.

The initial flow rate was correctly set at 10 mcgtt/min. After eight hours, 220 ml of IV fluid remains to be infused. The infusion is behind schedule. Compute the new flow rate in gtt/min so that the infusion will finish on time. Note that flow rates may not be adjusted by more than 25% of the original rate. To what rate would you reset the drip rate, or would you contact the prescriber instead?
1. Contact the prescriber.
2. 13 gtt/min
3. 14 gtt/min
4. 9 gtt/min
