Dimensional Analysis

Chapter 5

- Measures the drug in terms of action
- No symbol for units

- Express the unit dosage in numerals and symbols:
- Three hundred and fifty thousand units.
- 350,000 units

- Twenty-five hundred units.
- 25,000 units

- Sixty units.
- 60 units

- Percentage means parts per hundred.
- No space between the # and the %
- 1% not 1 %

- The greater the percentage strength, the stronger the solution or ointment.

- Which is stronger, a 3% solution or a 6% solution?
- 3%
- 6%

- Un
- U
- UN
- Ut
- None of the above

- In solution, percent represents the number of grams of drug per 100 mL of solution.
- 100 mL of a 1% solution will contain 1 g of drug

- 100 mL of a 1% solution will contain how many grams of drug?
- 1 g

- 100 mL of a 2.5% solution will contain how many grams of drug?
- 2.5 g

- 100 mL of a 10% solution will contain how many grams of drug?
- 10 g

- 100 mL of a 5% solution will contain how many grams of drug?
- 1 g
- 5 g
- 10 g
- 100 g
- None of the above

- But what if it is not 100 mL Mrs. Keele?

- To change percentage to fraction by 100
- 5% =

- 70
- 7
- 0.7
- 0.07
- 0.007

- 60
- 6
- 0.6
- 0.06
- None of the above

100 mL of a 5% solution will contain how many grams of drug?

g/mL

- 5% = g/mL

325 mL of a 6% solution will contain how many grams of drug?

18.5 g

6 g

16.25 g

19.5 g

None of the above

- 6.45 g
- 64.5 g
- 645 g
- None of the above
- I’m so lost I have no idea!

- 0.78 g
- 7.8 g
- 78 g
- 780 g
- None of the above

- Number of grams of drug contained in 1 mL of a solution
- Who cares?
- Not you

- What do I need to know
- -mEq = milliequivalent

- Express the milliequivalent dosages in numbers and symbols:
- Fifteen milliequivalents
- 15 mEq

- Twenty-five milliequivalents
- 25 mEq

- Forty-two milliequivalents
- 42 mEq

- Parts of drug per parts of solution
- 1:500
- 1 part drug to 500 parts solution

- 1:20
- 1 part drug to 20 parts solution

- A solution that is 1 part drug and 10 parts solution is written:
- 1:10

- If I take 1 bottle of alcohol & add it to 2 bottles of soda
- 1:2 ratio
- How drunk would one glass of this spiked punch make you?

- If I take 1 bottle of alcohol & add it to 5 bottles of soda
- 1:5 ratio
- How drunk would one glass of this spiked punch make you?
- Which would make you more drunk 1:2 or 1:5?

- The less solution a drug is dissolved in, the stronger the solution.
- A ratio of 1:2 is much stronger than 1:5
- A ration of 1:5 is much stronger than a 1:500

- A) 1:20
- B) 1:200
- C) 1:2

- A) 1:50
- B) 1:20
- C) 1:100

- A) 1:1000
- B) 1:4000
- C) 1:3000

- Ounce
- Abbreviation: oz

- Ounce
- Metric equivalent: 30 mL
- 1 oz = 30 mL

- How many milliliters in 3 oz?
- 90 mL
- mL

- Tablespoon
- Abbreviation: T, TBS, Tbsp
- Metric equivalent: 15 mL
- 1 Tbsp.= 15 mL

- How many milliliters in 3 Tbsp?
- 45 mL (3 x 15 = 45)
- = 45mL

- Teaspoon
- Abbreviation: t, TSP, tsp
- Metric equivalent: 5 mL
- So 1 tsp = 5 mL

- How many milliliters in 3 tsp?
- 15 mL (3 tsp x 5 mL = 15 mL)

- Drop
- Abbreviation: gtt (gtts)
- Metric equivalent: 1 mL
- So 1 gtt = 1 mL

- How many milliliters in 3 gtts?
- 3 mL (3 x 1 = 3)

- Grain
- Abbreviation: gr
- Metric equivalent: 60 mg
- 1 gr = 60 mg

- How many milligrams in 3 gr?
- 180 mg (3 x 60 = 180)

- (For grains see page 306 of your text book)
