question 1) You need to give 1g of erythromycin orally. You have erythromycin suspension 250mg in 5ml. How much of the suspension do you need to give? ( 1000mg = 1g)
so we have 250mg in 5ml, and i need to give 1g,
so is it
so 1000mg = 20 ml?
So I need to give 20ml?
question 2) you are to administrator a drug to a patient that comes in strength 1 in 100, you need to give the patient 200mg of the drug. how man ml would you need to prepare? (1 in 1000 means 1g in 1000ml, )
Am not sure how to to this one,
if 1 in 100 means, 1g in 100ml, than 200mg is gong to be 0.2g in 20ml, so is it 20ml I need to give?
