The NP orders 40 mg of Furosemide to be administered intravenously stat. The concentration of Furosemide in the IV solution is not mentioned in the question.

Since the question does not provide the concentration of the medication, we can assume that the concentration is 1 g/mL. Therefore, to administer 0.5 g of Tranexamic IV, we need to administer 0.5 mL of the medication. Thus, the correct answer is 5 mL.
