This calculator determines the infusion time of a manually controlled IV.

The input parameters or variables are:

Volume - The amount of solution or fluid to be given over a time period the amount of solution or fluid to be given over a time period.

Rate - The drip rate, flow rate or watch count of the IV.

Calibration - The drop factor or the number of drops needed to deliver 1 milliliter of fluid.

The answer, Infusion Time, is given in time units of minutes and hours.

In addition, the calculator provides a step by step example of the derived solution.

Note: IV stands for intravenous. IV tubing comes in 10, 15 and 20 gtt/mL for macrodrop and 60 gtt/mL for microdrop factors.
