We were doing drug calculations in Pharm today and I think the instructor was dead wrong, but Im not the kind of student to correct an instructor's wrongs especially this one because she is EXTREMELY combative and defensive so I just sent all my classmates a note on Blackboard telling them that I think her calculation was wrong or she missed a step or something....I didn't tell them what yet because I wanted to be sure so here is the problem:The suggested range for a medication is 3-5mg/kg/day. The client weighs 175 lbs. What would be the maximum dosage the client receives in 24 hours?How I calculated it was: 79.55kg * 5 mg = 397.75mg / (three 8-hour intervals) 3 = 132.59 mgI may be wrong but another instructor told us to calculate the time by breaking it down into intervals. Im not sure where that instructor got that from but it is what she gave us...now the two seem to be colliding and no one knows what the right answer is. Can anyone help? What is right here, what is wrong here?
