NCLEX-RN Question

  1. Q.A 40 pound Client is to receive Monistat 20 mg/kg IV in 4 divided doses. The Monistat comes in vials containing 200g/20mL. How much solution should be in each dose? the book says 9.1 but I think they made a mistake in thier conversion which looks like this in the back.

    A.Client weights 18.18 kg X 20mg=363.6 total mg/4 doses= 90.9 mg per dose.
    200/20=90.9/x=200x=1818 or x= 9.09 rouonded to 9.1 mL per dose.
    ?How did they get this answer and cause you would have to convert mg to g wouldn't you? I am studying for my NCLEX-RN thanks for your help

    It seems to me they made a typo... It should be 200 mg/ 20 mL instead of 200grams which would be an ENORMOUS amount of drug!!! If you use 200mg/20 mL the answer comes out to 9.1 mL per dose.

    200g = 200000mgs so 200000mgs/20mls doesn't convert to 9.1mls for the volume. I agree, it looks like a typo. I wonder if you would get the answer wrong if you made the assumption the 200g should have read 200mgs?
