    Reconstitution safe dosage calculation question

    Thank you so much. I got it now, I just had to ignore that last part. Not sure why the question was confusing, even though the label had nothing to do with the answer. Thank you again.

    Reconstitution safe dosage calculation question

    I agree. I think they meant to say ml per dose. If that was the case, will the 12 ml per dose be correct ?? And when would I use the 37 ml or 60 ml reconstitution data?? With what kind of questions???

    Reconstitution safe dosage calculation question

    So I know that the tot volume after reconstitution will be 60 mL, and I also know that I have to add 37 ml to something.......
  6. Hello, I have a question I am struggling with. The orders is for Omnicef (cefdinir), oral suspension 300 mg po q12 hr for 10 days. The label say 125mg/5mL , Reconstitute with 37 mL Water, and 60 mL when reconstituted. The question says to calculate how many grams of the antibiotic the patient will receive per dose??? THis is what I have so far: 300 mg ----> X 125 mg -----> 5 mL so, X = (300 * 5 ) / 125 = 12 mL Now I am stuck, because I am not sure what to do with the 37 mL and 60 mL. I don't understand how to read the question.... Can someone please help me. ???
