Question #59162

Doctor orders a dose of prescription medication 20 mcg/kg body weight per day. The drug prescribed comes as 0.125 mg/mL form. Patient weighs 150 lbs. How many mL should be administered for the correct dose

Expert's answer

150 lbs = 68.039 kg

m(dose) = 20 mcg/kg∙68.039 kg = 1360.78 mcg = 1.361 mg

V (dose) = 1.361 mg ∙ 0.125 mg/mL = 0.17 mL

Answer: 0.17 mL

m(dose) = 20 mcg/kg∙68.039 kg = 1360.78 mcg = 1.361 mg

V (dose) = 1.361 mg ∙ 0.125 mg/mL = 0.17 mL

Answer: 0.17 mL
