Answer #1

Here docter already mentioned the amount of medication to be administered so we donot want to calculate it according to his weight

desired (devided by )available X volume=ml

250mg/125mg X2 ml = 4 ml

**so 4 ml have to
be administered every 8 hourly**

RECOMMONDED SINGLE DOSE IS 15 TO 20 MG PER KG FOR FINDING THAT

WEIHT OF CHILD IS 14 KG

weight of child X 20 mg/day

14 X20mg = 280 mg

recommonded single dose is 280 mg that is

desired/available X VOLUME

280/ 125 X 2ML = 4.48 ML

ANSWER IS 5 ML
