Could you help with this:


Make a vancomycin IV 750 mg every bid in D5W 250mL. You have vancomycin 1 g per 20 mL. How much will you take from the 1-g vial?

I'm having trouble deciphering which is needless information and what to make into an equation. Also, this is my first week of classes.

1gm per 20ml

You want 750mg, which is eqaual to 3/4 of 1000mg (1gm).

3/4 (or 75%) of 20ml = 15ml

You will withdraw 15ml from the 20ml (1gm) vial of Vancomycin.
