Quote from Wuzzie
But your instructor told you to dilute it in 9ml of NS.
I generally don't do home work
You have on hand10mg/1ml. Morphine, you need to give( not serve) 2mg. Morphine diluted in saline flush
Each 1ml of 10 mg morphine, contains 1mg of morphine per 0.1ml...... There fore to give 2mg, you would add to the flush
0.2ml of the stock 10mg / 1 ml of morphine......
If you added 1ml of your stock solution to even 100mls. normal saline, regardless of the dilution, you would be giving 10mg morphine, instead of 2 mg.......
Geezer. This is high school math
