Question #5927

what is the mass (weight) gain of a patient who received 1.8L in intravenous glucose solution IV with a density of 1.23g/mL ?

Expert's answer

The mass (weight) gain of a patient is equivalent mass of glucose solution (m).

m =*p*V ( *p* is density)

V = 1,8 L = 1800ml.

m = 1.23*1800 = 2215 g (or 2.214 kg)

m =

V = 1,8 L = 1800ml.

m = 1.23*1800 = 2215 g (or 2.214 kg)
