I am just wondering if anyone knows of a website that has practice problems for tpa dosages. I know the tpa formula, but want to practice using it. Any and all tips are appreciated!!
have not seen any problems like this. usually, this is a critical situation and the doctors actually write the first dose out and it is started in the er and continued in the ccu or icu. i have specific dosage information on this drug in my copy of 2007 intravenous medications
, 23rd edition, by betty l. gahart and adrienne r. nazareno if you would like me to print it here for you. otherwise i have two websites with information:
these dosage calculations are similar to the ones worked out in this thread where you have to consider the patients weight in kg, a certain mg and a certain length of time of delivery (in this post it is 24 hours, but it can easily be changed to 30 minutes or 2 minutes as in the case with calculations involving alteplase): http://allnurses.com/forums/f205/ple...th-322574.html
