How to Convert U-100 Insulin in Units to Milliliters
|To administer this amount of U-100 insulin||Draw to this level in a 1 ml syringe|
|28 units||0.28 mls|
|29 units||0.29 mls|
|30 units||0.30 mls|
|31 units||0.31 mls|
- You know that each 10 mL insulin vial contains 1000 units of insulin (100 units/mL x 10 mL/vial = 1000 units/vial), so you dispense one vial of Lantus for a one-month supply.
- 5,000 USP Heparin Units/mL, 1 mL fill in a 3 mL vial. 10,000 USP Heparin Units/mL, 1 mL fill in a 3 mL vial. 10,000 USP Heparin Units/mL, 1 mL fill in a 3 mL vial. 20,000 USP Heparin Units/mL, 1 mL fill in a 3 mL vial.
- 18 units X 75 kg = 1350 units/hour Step 2: Calculate the starting rate of the Infusion (solve for X).
- Heparin Infusion Rate: 25,000 units = 1350 units/hour.
- X (ml/hour)
- 25,000 units (X ml/hr) = 675,000.
- X ml/hr = 675,000.
- X = 27 ml/hour.
The U-100 means there are 100 units in 1 milliliter. 30 units of a U-100 insulin are equal to 0.3 milliliters (0.3 ml).
- ›› Definition: Millilitre. The millilitre (ml or mL, also spelled milliliter) is a metric unit of volume that is equal to one thousandth of a litre. It is a non-SI unit accepted for use with the International Systems of Units (SI). It is exactly equivalent to 1 cubic centimetre (cm³, or, non-standard, cc).
- International Units Per Millilitre (IU/mL) An international unit is an arbitrary amount of a substance agreed upon by scientists and doctors. A millilitre is a measure of volume that is equal to one-thousandth of a litre (or slightly less than a quarter of a teaspoon).
- Sometimes your baby may awaken because of gas — simply picking your little one up to burp might put him or her back to sleep. As your baby gets older, you shouldn't worry if your child doesn't burp during or after every feeding. Usually, it just means that your baby has learned to eat without swallowing excess air.
