the recommended dose for gentamicin is 5mg/kg/ day in threee divided doses.If a patient weighs 164lb, how many milligrams should that patient receive for each dose?
which of the following drugs is classed as an h2 antagonist?
convert 164 lb to kg;
5 mg/kg/day * 1day/3doses
= 5/3 mg/kg per dose
Multiply this number by the weight of the patient in kg
