How many milligrams should the patient receive per day? ________ b. How many milligrams should the patient receive per dose? ________ c. How many capsules should the patient receive per day? ________ d. How many capsules should the patient receive per dose? ________

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:a) 996.6 mgb) 498.96 mgc) 4d) 2Step-by-step explanation:Given:Dose to be given = 10 mg/kg/dayNumber of dose to be divided = 2weight of the patient = 220 poundsnow, 1 pound = 0.453 kgthus, weight of the patient = 220 × 0.4536 = 99.792 kga) Amount of Drug patient should receive per day = dose × weight of patientorAmount of Drug patient should receive per day = 10 × 99.792 orAmount of Drug patient should receive per day = 997.92 mgb) Now, the dose is divided in to 2 per daythus, The amount of drug received per dose = [tex]\frac{\textup{Drug received per day}}{\textup{Number of dose per day}}[/tex]
orThe amount of drug received per dose = [tex]\frac{\textup{997.92 mg}}{\textup{2}}[/tex]
orThe amount of drug received per dose = 498.96 mgc) weight of capsule = 250 mgThus, capsules received by patient per day = [tex]\frac{\textup{Dose per day in mg}}{\textup{weight of capsule in mg}}[/tex] orcapsules received by patient per day = [tex]\frac{\textup{997.92}}{\textup{250}}[/tex] orcapsules received by patient per day = 3.99168 ≈ 4 d) Capsules to be received per dose = [tex]\frac{\textup{Amount of drug per dose in mg}}{\textup{weight of capsule in mg}}[/tex] orcapsules received by patient per dose = [tex]\frac{\textup{498.86}}{\textup{250}}[/tex] orcapsules received by patient per dose = 1.99544 ≈ 2
