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

3
Sample problems - Answers Express the unit dosage in numerals and symbols: 1. Three hundred and fifty thousand units. A. 350,000 units 2. Twenty-five hundred units. A. 25,000 units 3. Sixty units. A. 60 units

4
Percentage (%) measures 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.

5
Sample Question Which is stronger, a 3% solution or a 6% solution? A. 3% B. 6%

6
Which of the following is the correct abbreviation for “units”? A. Un B. U C. UN D. Ut E. None of the above

7
Percentage (%) measures 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

8
Sample Questions 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

9
100 mL of a 5% solution will contain how many grams of drug? A.1 g B.5 g C.10 g D.100 g E.None of the above

10
But what if it is not 100 mL Mrs. Keele?

11
Convert % to fraction

12
What is the fraction of 7% A. 70 B. 7 C. 0.7 D. 0.07 E. 0.007

13
What is the fraction of 60% A. 60 B. 6 C. 0.6 D. 0.06 E. None of the above

15
250 mL of a 5% solution will contain how many grams of drug?

16
325 mL of a 6% solution will contain how many grams of drug? A.18.5 g B.6 g C.16.25 g D.19.5 g E.None of the above

17
120 mL of a 5.4% solution will contain how many grams of drug? A. 6.45 g B. 64.5 g C. 645 g D. None of the above E. I’m so lost I have no idea!

18
260 mL of a 3% solution will contain how many grams of drug? A. 0.78 g B. 7.8 g C. 78 g D. 780 g E. None of the above

19
Milliequivalent (mEq) measures Number of grams of drug contained in 1 mL of a solution Who cares? Not you What do I need to know -mEq = milliequivalent

20
Sample Questions: Express the milliequivalent dosages in numbers and symbols: 1. Fifteen milliequivalents A. 15 mEq 2. Twenty-five milliequivalents A. 25 mEq 3. Forty-two milliequivalents A. 42 mEq

21
Ratio Measures 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

22
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?

23
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?

24
Ratio Measures 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

25
Identify the strongest solution: A) 1:20 B) 1:200 C) 1:2

26
Identify the strongest solution: A) 1:50 B) 1:20 C) 1:100

27
Identify the strongest solution: A) 1:1000 B) 1:4000 C) 1:3000
