Adult Infusion Rate Calculator   

The Adult Infusion Rate Calculator calculates the proper infusion rate for vasoactive drugs, anticoagulants, and other medications (amiodarone, argatroban, bivalirudin, diltiazem, dopamine, dobutamine, epinephrine, esmolol, fenolodopam, heparin, integrilin, insulin, isoproterenol, labetalol, milrinone, nesiritid, nitroglycerine, nitroprusside, norepinephrine, phenylephrine, procainamide, and propofol). The purpose of the infusion rate calculator is to prevent medication errors, standardized concentrations, and assist the nurse taking care of the patient.
