A patient can make a request for his or her health information from the doctor in several ways that please him or her depending on the agreeable terms.

Therefore, that is how the addicts stay addicted and sometimes want more and more. Sometimes, people will die from the excess alcohol or drugs they are ingesting. These people need help and they should go to a rehabilitation facility in order to get themselves off of drugs or alcohol.

The correct answer to this question is A.

To administer 250 mg of Aminophylline, you would need one 10ml vial. (Each 10ml vial is 25mg/ml. 250mg = 10ml.) This means, that for the toal volume of 500ml, you need 490ml of saline and 10ml of Aminophylline. The patient weighs 110lbs (50kg).

To achieve the rate of 0.4mg/kg/hr, the patient needs to receive 20mg of Aminophylline per hour. 250mg of Aminophylline divided by 20mg/hr gives the infusion a total run time of 12.5 hours. 500ml of total volume divided by the 12.5 hour infusion time lets us know that the patient should receive 40ml/hr, or 0.6667ml per minute. Knowing that the IV delivers 60gtts/min, we multiply the ml/min x gtts/min (0.6667 x 60). This gives us the flow rate of 40gtts/min.
