Exercise 07: VTBI And Infusion Rate Calculator

Date completed: 02/09/2019

Hospitals use programmable pumps to deliver medications and fluids to intra-venous lines at a set number of milliliters per hour. Write a program to output information for the labels the hospital pharmacy places on bags of I.V. medications indicating the volume of medication to be infused and the rate at which the pump should be set. The program should prompt the user to enter the quantity of fluid in the bag and the number of minutes over which it should be infused. Output the VTBI (volume to be infused) in ml and the infusion rate in ml/hr.

Sample run:


Volume to be infused (ml) => 100 Minutes over which to infuse => 20 VTBI: 100 ml Rate: 300 ml/hr
