**Dimensional Analysis for Meds**

Chapter 4

2
**Chapter 4 Metric, International (SI) System**

You do not need to know all of the System! Much easier than English System All units of measure differ from teach other in powers of ten (10). Conversions between units in the system are accomplished by simply moving the decimal point.

3
**English Lengths 12 inches = 1 foot 3 feet = 1 yard 5 ½ yards = 1 rod**

40 rods = 1 furlong 8 furlongs = 1 mile

4
**English Weights 27 11/32 grains = 1 dram 16 drams = 1 ounce**

16 ounces = 1 pound 200 pounds = 1 ton

5
**English Volumes 2 pints = 1 quart 4 quarts = 1 gallon**

31 ½ gallows = 1 barrel 2 barrels = 1 hogshead

6
**English Lengths 500 inches x 1 foot/12 inches = 41.67 feet**

12 inches = 1 foot 3 feet = 1 yard 5 ½ yards = 1 rod 40 rods = 1 furlong 8 furlongs = 1 mile If you have a piece of sting that is 500 inches long, how many feet is that? How many yards? 500 inches x 1 foot/12 inches = feet 500 in x 1 ft/12 in x 1 yrd/3 ft = yards

7
**Metric System 3 Basic words It does not mater what prefix you have.**

Meter = length Gram = weight Liter = volume It does not mater what prefix you have.

8
**Small Group Quiz! L = Length W = Weight V = Volume Milligram**

Centimeter Milliliter Kilometer Microgram L = Length W = Weight V = Volume

9
**Small Group Quiz! Milligram = (W) weight Centimeter = (L) length**

Milliliter = (V) volume Kilometer = (L) length Microgram = (W) weight

10
**Metric prefixes Same prefix for length, volume, weight. Kilogram**

Kiloliter Kilometer

11
**Kilo Kilo Prefix Larger than basic by 1000 1 kilometer = 1000 meters**

1 kilogram = 1000 grams 1 kiloliter = 1000 liters

12
**3 Prefixes (smaller than basic)**

Centi – ( centimeter) 100x smaller than basic Milli – (Millimeter) 1000x smaller than basic Micro (microgram) 1,000,000x smaller than basic

13
**1 Kilometer = 1 meter = 1 millimeter = 1000 meters 1000 millimeters**

1000 micrometer

14
**1 Kilogram = 1 gram = 1 milligram = 1000 gram 1000 milligram**

1000 microgram

15
**Kiloliter = 1 Liter = 1 milliliter = 1000 Liter 1000 milliliter**

1000 microliter

16
**Symbols Prefix Kilo = k Basic unit Centi = c Milli = m Micro = mc**

Kiloliter = kL Centi = c Centimeter = cm Milli = m Millimeter = mm Micro = mc Microgram – mcg Basic unit Meter = m Liter = L Gram = g

17
Rules! mL = cc Do not chart Microgram = mg

18
**Small group Quiz Write the following in abbreviated form Microgram**

Milliliter Kilometer Kilogram Microliter Centimeter

19
**Small group Quiz Write the following in abbreviated form**

Microgram = mcg Milliliter = mL Kilometer = km Kilogram = kg Microliter = mcL Centimeter = cm

20
**Metric System & Meds Weight Volume**

Only use dosages that differ by 1000 units to the next measurement Weight Volume 1 kg = 1000 g 1 L = 1000 mL 1 g = 1000 mg 1 mg = 1000 mcg

21
**Conversions between units**

Conversion between units are accomplished by moving the decimal point! How far? (How many places)? How many “0” in 1000? 3 Move the decimal point 3 places

22
**Conversions between units**

Which direction do you move the decimal point? IF large units to small units The quantity (number) must get larger Large smaller Move the decimal to the right 0.5 g = __?__ mg g to mg is a difference of 1000 units Kg g mg mcg 500 mg

23
**Conversions between Units**

2.5 L = __?__ mL L to mL is a difference of 1000 units L mL Large small 2500 mL 500 mg = __?__ mcg mg to mcg is a difference of 1000 units Kg g mg mcg 500,000 mcg

24
**Small Group Practice 9 mg = ___?___ mcg 2.3 L = ___?___ mL**

0.09 kg = ___?___ g 4.7 g = ___?___ mg 0.75 kg = ___?___ g

25
**Small Group Practice 9 mg = 9000 mcg 2.3 L = 2300 mL 0.09 kg = 90 g**

4.7 g = 4700 mg 0.75 kg = 750 g

26
**Conversions between Units**

What if we are converting up the scale, going from smaller larger units? Move the decimal point 3 places to the Left 200 mL = ___?___ L mL to L is different of 1000 units L mL Smaller larger 0.2 L

27
**Conversions between Units**

50 mcg = ___?___ mg mcg to mg is different of 1000 units Kg g mg mcg Smaller larger 0.05 mg

28
**Small group Practice 4200 mL = ___?___ L 520 mg = ___?___ g**

30 mcg = ___?___ mg 7420 g = ___?___kg 2.2 L = ___?___ mL

29
**Small group Practice 4200 mL = 4.2 L 520 mg = 0.52 g 30 mcg = 0.03 mg**

7420 g = 7.42 kg 2.2 L = 2200 mL
