PHCY 6106 PRACTICE PROBLEMS Milliequivalents and Milliosmols Teixeira 1 1. A patient weighing 154 Lb is to receive 0.2 mEq/Kg of body weight of calcium gluconate. (1 kg = 2.2 Lb) a. How many milliliters of a 25% solution b. How many of calcium gluconate should be added to the patient’s infusion solution to provide the prescribed amount? milliosmols of calcium are represented in the volume received by the patient? 2. A parenteral admixture solution contains, in each 5mL, 0.5 g of potassium acetate, 0.05 g of potassium bicarbonate, and 0.5 g of potassium citrate. How many total milliequivalents of potassium (K + ) are represented in each 5mL of the solution? 3. A 40mL vial of sodium chloride solution was diluted to 1 liter with sterile distilled water. The concentration (w/v) of sodium chloride (NaCl) in the finished product was 0.585%. What was the concentration, in milliequivalents per milliliter, of the original solution? 4. A certain electrolyte solution contains 0.9% of sodium chloride in 10% dextrose solution.

### 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.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
