Doctor orders depo-medrol 60mg IM. On hand: 80mg Depo-medrol. How many ml's will you give? I'm having a hard time converting mg to mls. I tried the problem and got 0.75 after dividing 60 into 80.
if 60mg are contained in 1ml then
this means 1.33ml contains 80mg of depo-medrol
any other question
Nope, that actually makes a lot of sense seeing it written out that way, I just divided the two numbers.
How exactly do you convert ml to mgs? and vice versa?
you do not convert mgs to mls.
we just use ratio to determine the conversion
Oh okay I thought there was a certain formula! Thanks for your help
60mg per 1ml is what will determine conversion
can i create my formular which u can easly understand ?
So like my next question on another problem, a patient is to recieve 38mg, and the vial only holds 5ml, how many mls of solution should the doctor administer? would it be 7.6 ML then if I divide 38 by 5?
Yes thank you that was easy to understand
first we will have to get the conversion ratio
38mg to 1ml?
picture of question here is a picture
ok let me check it
can you see the lable with 20mg/ml
Yes I see that
Am sorry for delay
Answer is 38/20=1.9ml
That is the answer I got.. thank you!!
