How to Calculate Dextrose IV Fluid Concentration - Tutorial

Calculate Dextrose IV Fluid Concentration - Formula, Example

Description:

This tutorial explains how to calculate the dextrose IV target concentration.

Formula:

Dextrose = (mix cc * mix + base cc * base) / (mix cc + base cc) where, cc - concentration
Example:

Base dextrose 70% , 30 cc was mixed with extrose 50% ,40 cc. Calculate the Dextrose target concentration.

Given,

Dextrose = 70 % and concentration = 30 cc Dextrose = 50 % and concentration = 40 cc

To find,

Target concentration

Solution:

Let us calculate the value of target concentration by substituting the values in the formula,

Dextrose= (mix cc * mix + base cc * base) / (mix cc + base cc)
= (70 * 30 + 50 * 40)/ (30 + 40)
= 58.571
Concentration = (mixcc * mix + basecc * base) / Dextrose
 = (70 * 30 + 50 * 40) / 58.571
 = 70
