I think complex math problems are so easy for me to do but it comes to “simple” math problems I over think things and make them complicated.
Complex Math Problem
A pediatric patient is prescribed Zantac 30mg IV g8h. The patient weights 52lbs. The package insert states that the recommended dosage for pediatric patient is for a total dose of 2-4mg/kg/day to be divided and administered every 6-8 hours up to a maximum dose of 50 mg per dose. Is the dosage safe?
Me: order is safe. 90mg/day
4*84 = ?
Shit. How do you do this? Where do I begin? I wish the professor gave me a cheat sheet. FACK! Quick write something. What’s 8*4? AHHHHHHHH
