ACTIVITY GUIDE 3 : DRUG DOSAGE PROBLEMS (Continued) B. Test Yourself: See how well you understand the use of this formula for solving dosage problems. Use an equivalent chart as necessary. Then look at the answers which follow: 1. To give 0.5 mg. of Ativan when you have tablets marked 0.25 mg: tablets. 2. Give Tigan 150 mg. from ampules of Tigan 200 mg./Ml:________________mL 3. Give Ceclor 375 mg. from a solution of Ceclor 125mg./5mL:___________mL Now look at the answers on the next page. If you missed any of these items try to determine whether you had difficulty with the arithmetic, with the measurement system, or with setting up the dosage problem (or perhaps a combination of these things). Consult library references or previous activity guides to obtain help or seek assistance from either a nursing instructor or an instructor in the Learning Assistance Center. 4

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
