A medication order of a drug calls for a dose of 0.6 mg/kg to be administered to a child weighing 31 lb. The drug is to be supplied for a solution containing 0.25 g in a 50 mL bottle. How many milliliters of this solution are required to fill this order? [Please present units as mL and not ml] [Round to the nearest hundredth] Answer 31 lb = 14.1 kg Dose is 0.6 mg/kg x 14.1 kg = 8.46 mg 250 mg = 8.46 mg j = 1.69 mL, answer 50 mL j mL Dimensional analysis ? = volume (mL) The concentration of the medication is expressed in a manner that the volume will be in the numerator because the units of the required answer are of volume (mL) 0.6 mg ; 31 lb ; 50 mL 3 1 kg 0.25 g 0.6 mg x 31 lb x 50 mL x 1 g x 1 kg = 1.69 mL, answer 1 kg 0.25 g 1,000 mg 2.2 lb 4. A 26-pound child is to receive ampicillin at 50 mg/kg/day in four equally divided doses. The ampicillin is available in a concentration of 125 mg/5 mL. How many mL are needed for one dose? [Please present units as mL and not ml] [Round to the nearest tenth] Answer Conversion of pounds to kilograms 1 kg = W kg W = 11.82 kg 2.2 lb 26 lb Daily amount of drug is 50 mg/kg/day x 11.82 kg = 590.9 mg/day There are 4 equal doses in a day, so a dose in milligrams is 590.9 / 4 = 147.72 mg Let’s find the volume of a dose using the concentration 125 mg = 147.72 j = 5.9 mL, answer 5 mL j mL Dimensional analysis ? = volume (mL) The concentration of the drug is expressed so that the volume (mL) will be in the numerator so that we will have a solution in units of volume (mL) 26 lb ; 50 mg ; 1 day ; 5 mL ; 1 dose kg x day 4 doses 125 mg 26 lb x 50 mg x 1 day x 5 mL x 1 dose x 1 kg = 5.9 mL, answer kg x day 4 doses 125 mg 2.2 lb  #### You've reached the end of your free preview.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.
