One small bug... but important! This program works amazingly well. However, I have found that if I input an amount of fluid to infused over a period of time in minutes and do it again over the equivalent hours, the hours version is correct, the minutes version is incorrect, not by much, but it gives a different answer. For example, in the "IV Volume Rate" tab, 250 mL in 90 minutes = 166.3 mL/hour. Then change minutes to hours: 250 mL in 1.5 hours = 166.7 mL/Hr. Regardless of which method is used, the end result should equal 166.7 mL/hour for this amount of fluid over the same period of time. As it is, either way will get you in the ball park, but "hours" will provide the most accurate answer. It's a great app for nursing students, I've used it quite a bit to double-check my calculations. Other programs I've tried require you calculate rate by "Hour" and do not offer you to do the calculations by inputting "minutes." It's just a handy thing when you have an order for something to go in over 110 minutes and you can't figure that to be 1.83 hours... I would expect that to be kind of rare, but... it's possible! Overall, I'm *very* impressed with this calculator! Rounding does affect output to whole mg amounts.

Ehhh Only needed for dose calculator for peds because Medscape no longer has it in their app. It's slow and clunky. Even on my S5. I uninstalled and installed "Child Dosage" app instead and it works so much better
