c) 60 mg to g
d) 0.060 mg to mcg
e) gr ii to mg
f) 165 mcg to mg
g) 500 mL to qt
h) 2 tsp to mL
i) 1 fluid oz to drams
Helpful Info for the above problems
Given the following equivalents for liquids (metric, household and apothecary)
1 tsp = 5 mL
1 tbsp =15 mL = ½ fluid oz = 4 drams
1 oz = 30 mL = 2 tbsp = 1 fluid oz = 8 drams
1 pt = 500 mL
1 qt = 1000 mL
4 qt = 1 gal
2.2 lb = 1 kg
Given that Liquid equivalents in the apothecary system are
1 m = 1 gtt
1 dr = 4 mL
8 dr = 1 oz
℥ i = 32 mL
Given the following equivalents for solids
15 grains = 1000 mg
1 grain = 60 mg (or 1 grain = 65 mg)

20) Nurse Flighty does not know where to find information about the reconstitution of powders.
Help her! Give at least three references.
21) Calculate ….
Reconstitution directions for cefazolin sodium (Ancef) are as follows:
Preparation of Parenteral Solution
Preparation of drug products should be SHAKEN WELL when reconstituted, and inspected visually
for particulate matter prior to administration. If particulate matter is evident in reconstituted
fluids, the drug solutions should be discarded. When reconstituted or diluted according to the
instructions below, Ancef (sterile cefazolin sodium, SK&F) is stable for 24 hours at room
temperature or 96 hours if stored under refrigeration. Reconstituted solutions may range in color
from pale yellow to yellow without a change in potency.
Single-Dose Vials
For IM injection, IV direct (bolus) injection, or IV infusion, reconstitute with Sterile Water for
Injection according to the following table. SHAKE WELL
Vial size: 500 mg
Amount of Diluent: 2.0 mL
Approximate concentration: 225 mg/mL
Approximate Available Volume: 2.2 mL
a) Order: Ancef 200 mg IM q6h
