Answer #1

1)BMI is 33.45 kg/m2 ( she is obese for her age she should be around 121pounds to 164 pounds)

2)Given 475 mg /10 ml

It means 100 ml = 4750 mg ( 10*475)

In grams it is 4.75 gram ( when 1 gram=1000mg,4750 mg will be 4.75 pon cross multiplication and division)

3)Given:220 pounds=99.79 kg can be round figured as 100kg

Order given 10mg/kg/day

So when 1 kg= 10 mg

100kg=1000 mg

So in a day 1000 mg to be administered in two divided doses so divide 1000 by 2 it will be 500 mg

So 500 mg in two doses to be given.

b)patient should receive 100mg/day

c) 500 mg per dose

d) 4 capsules a day

4:a:1unit per hour

Because when 20 hours=20units

Then 1 hour=??

20*1/20=1

b) in a hour 5ml to be administered

Because when 20 hours=100ml

Then 1 hour=??

100*1/20=5
