# How to Calculate IV Drip Rates?

Micro drip IV is a device that is used to calculate drip rates per minute. You can calculate IV drip rates by first calculating the drops per minute for an IV drip which the patient requires then multiplying the volume of the IV set in cc's by the drop factor of the IV set and divide the outcome in minutes then take the dose needed by the patient and multiplying the desired dosage per minute by the drop factor and finally calculate drops per minute for an infusion.
