I received practice questions over the summer for my upcoming dosage calculations test. We also received an answer sheet, but I need help figuring out how to get the answer. The problem is:
A 4 year old child who weighs 24 kg is to receive 180 mcg of digoxin PO q12h. The digoxin elixir is available in a liquid concentration of 0.05 mg/ml. How many ml should the nurse give for the dose?
If anyone would be willing to show how to set up the equation I would really appreciate it.
