** ANSWERS **

- 7.5 ML/HR @ 1 MCG/MIN = LOWEST DOSE
- 22.5 ML/HR @ 3 MCG/MIN = HIGHEST DOSE

2 MG = 2000 MCG
2000 / 250 ML = 8 MCG/ML

LOWER: 1 MCG/MIN / 8 MCG/ML = 0.125 ML/MIN
UPPER: 3 MCG/MIN / 8 MCG/ML = 0.375 ML/MIN

LOWER: 0.125 ML/MIN = 60 MIN/HR = 7.5 ML/HR
UPPER: 0.375 ML/MIN = 60 MIN/HR = 22.5 ML/HR
