I would appreciate any help with this med calc problem. It's one of few I'm stumbling over for next semester.
Dr.'s order: Mefoxin (cefoxitin sodium) 100mg/kg/day IV q 4 hours
Pharmacy sends: Mefoxin (cefoxitin sodium) 1 gram to be diluted with 10ml NS.
Child weighs: 15lbs = 6.82kgs
A. How many milligrams of Mefoxin per day will this 15lb child receive?
6.82kgs x 100mg/kg/day= 682mg/day
B. How many milligrams per dose Mefoxin will the nurse administer?
C. How many mL of Mefoxin will the nurse administer with each dose?
B & C have me stumped
