Want this question answered?
I don't know, but maybe this will help. Are you sure it is microunits, not milliunits.mU - milliunitmU/g - milliunits per grammU/L - milliunits per litermU/mL - milliunits per milliliter
289,000,000. 1 killiter = 1,000,000 milliters
I am not offering this as a medical answer, but I believe the math is as follows. 100 units = 100,000 milliunits. Diluted 10:1 this makes 1,000,000 milliunits of solution. Since you want 50 milliunits of pitocin per minute, this would be 500 milliunits of solution per minute, or 0.5ml (1/2 ml)per minute.
One thousand, since milli- means one thousandth.
