### Drug Calculation

1. 1. Drug Calculation mohammed alhabsi indanan, RN
2. 2. sketch out of my talks <ul><li>Conversion </li></ul><ul><li>Methods of Calculation </li></ul><ul><li>Intravenous Flow rate Calculation </li></ul><ul><li>Continuous Infusion </li></ul><ul><li>Common Drug infusion & how they are given </li></ul><ul><li>Exercises </li></ul>
3. 3. Conversion <ul><li>Nanograms </li></ul><ul><li>Micrograms </li></ul><ul><li>Milligrams </li></ul><ul><li>Grams </li></ul><ul><li>Kilograms </li></ul><ul><li>ml </li></ul><ul><li>L </li></ul>÷ X 1000 1000
4. 4. Methods of Calculation <ul><li>Basic Formula </li></ul><ul><li>Ratio & proportion </li></ul><ul><li>Fractional Equation </li></ul>
5. 5. Basic Formula <ul><li>D = Desired dose </li></ul><ul><li>H = Dose on Hand </li></ul><ul><li>V = Vehicle-tablet or liquid </li></ul><ul><li>D </li></ul><ul><li>H </li></ul>X V = Amount to Give
6. 6. Basic Formula: <ul><li>Example: </li></ul><ul><li>Order – Dilantin 50mg orally TID </li></ul><ul><li>Drug Available-Dilantin 125mg/5ml </li></ul><ul><li>D=50mg H=125mg V=5ml </li></ul><ul><li>50 250 </li></ul><ul><li>125 125 </li></ul>x = = 2ml 5
7. 7. Ratio & proportion Extremes     Means     X : D :: V : H Desired   Known
8. 8. Ratio & proportion <ul><li>HX = DV </li></ul><ul><li> DV </li></ul><ul><li> H </li></ul><ul><li>Order-Keflex 1gm orally TID </li></ul><ul><li>Drug Available-Keflex 250mg/capsule </li></ul><ul><li>D= 1gm (note: need to convert to mg) </li></ul><ul><li>H= 250mg </li></ul><ul><li>V= 1 capsule </li></ul>= X
9. 9. Ratio & proportion: 250X = 1000 1000 250 X = X = 4 capsules X : 1000 :: 1 : 250
10. 10. Fractional Equation <ul><li>Cross multiply & solve for X </li></ul>H V = D X HX = DV = DV H
11. 11. Fractional Equation <ul><li>Order: Digoxin 0.25mg orally per day </li></ul><ul><li>Drug available: 0.125mg per tablet </li></ul><ul><li>D=0.25mg H=0.125mg V=1 tab </li></ul>0.125 1 = 0.25 X 0.125X = 0.25 X = 0.25_ 0.125 X = 2 tablets
12. 12. Intravenous Flow Rate Calculation <ul><li>Step 1- amount of fluid divided by hours to administer = ml/hr </li></ul><ul><li>Step 2- ml/hr x gtts/ml </li></ul><ul><li> 60 min </li></ul><ul><li>Amount of fluid X gtts/ml___ </li></ul><ul><li>hours to administer X min/hr </li></ul>= gtts/min Two step One step
13. 13. Intravenous Flow Rate Calculation <ul><li>1000ml over 8 hrs </li></ul><ul><li>IV set= 15gtts/ml </li></ul><ul><li>Step 1: </li></ul><ul><li>Step 2: </li></ul>1000 8 = 125ml/hr 125x15 60 = 31 gtts/min Two step
14. 14. Intravenous Flow Rate Calculation <ul><li>1000 X 15 15000 </li></ul><ul><li>8hrs X 60 480 </li></ul>= = 31 gtts/min One step
15. 15. Continuous Infusion calculation <ul><li>Note : always look 1 st for DC </li></ul><ul><li>mg/min (Lidocaine, Pronestyl) </li></ul><ul><li>Desired dose X 60 </li></ul><ul><li>Drug mg </li></ul><ul><li>Drug mg X cc/hr_____ </li></ul><ul><li>Solution cc X 60 min/hr </li></ul>= ml/hr = mg/hr
16. 16. Continuous Infusion calculation mg/min (Lidocaine, Pronestyl) 1mg = 7 cc/hr 2 mg = 15 cc/hr 3 mg = 22 cc/hr 4 mg = 30 cc/hr Lidocaine, Pronestyl 2 gms/250 cc D 5 W Rule of Thumb
17. 17. Continuous Infusion calculation <ul><li>mcg/min (For example - Nitroglycerin) </li></ul><ul><li>Desired dose X 60 </li></ul><ul><li>Drug mcg </li></ul><ul><li>Drug mcg X cc/hr____ </li></ul><ul><li>Solution cc X 60min/hr </li></ul>= cc/hr = mcg/hr
18. 18. Continuous Infusion calculation mcg/min (Nitroglycerin) 1 cc/hr = 3.3 mcg/min NTG 50 mg/250 cc 1 cc/hr = 6.6 mcg/min NTG 100 mg/250 cc Rule of Thumb
19. 19. Continuous Infusion calculation <ul><li>mcg/kg/min </li></ul><ul><li>(Dopamine,Dobutamine,Nipride etc.) </li></ul><ul><li>A. To calculate cc/hr </li></ul>

21. 21. <ul><li>mcg/kg/min </li></ul><ul><li>Dopamine 400mg/250ml D5W to start </li></ul><ul><li>at 5mcg/kg/min. weight is 86kg. </li></ul><ul><li>5 X 86 X 60 </li></ul><ul><li>1600 </li></ul><ul><li>= 16.1ml/hr </li></ul>
22. 22. <ul><li>mcg/kg/min </li></ul><ul><li>Dopamine 400mg/250cc D5W to start </li></ul><ul><li>at 5mcg/kg/min. weight is 86kg. </li></ul><ul><li>250cc_ </li></ul><ul><li>400,000mcg </li></ul>X 60min X 86kg X 5mcg/kg/min = 16.1ml/hr
23. 23. Continuous Infusion calculation <ul><li>mcg/kg/min </li></ul><ul><li>B. To calculate mcg/kg/min </li></ul><ul><li>Drug mcg/ X cc/hr________ </li></ul><ul><li>Solution cc X 60min/hr X kg </li></ul>=mcg/kg/min
24. 24.
