How many milliliters will be administered for a single dose if the child is receiving 5 mg/kg every 6 hours?

Answer #1

Order-ibuprofen 100mg/5mlQ6H

Convert weight in pounds to kg=pound/2.2=32/2.2=14.5kg

Treatment dosage=4-6mg/kg/dose.

14.5kg*4mg/kg/dose=58mg/dose,Since it is given every 8 hoursthats 3 times a day

so 58*3=174mg/day

14.5kg*6=87mgldose

87*3=261mg/day

100mg*3=300

So the safe dose range is between 174mg/day to 261mg/day.

2.Weight inkg*Dosage perkg=Y(Desired Dose)

14.5kg*5mg/kg=72.5mg

DesiredDose/Available dose*Quantity=

Desired Dose=72.5mg

Available dose=100mg

Quantity=5ml

72.5mg/100*5=3.6ml
