Drug Calculation Question

You are asked to give Dextrose 20 grams IV. You have a bottle of Dextrose 5%. What volume are you going to infuse?

Any Answers?

Its been a while since I have done these.

Ther are 50mg/ml dextrose in D5, so if you need 20 grams, that's how many mg? Then divide your total mg needed by 50 to get mls. Does this help to get you started?
