IV Math Calculation: How many MLs of reconstituted Penicillin per dose?
Syringe and Penicillin Vial

A 20,000,000 unit vial of penicillin can be reconstituted with 32.4ml of sterile water to provide 500,000 units per ml. How many milliliters of the reconstituted vial should be used to make one bag containing 4 doses of 2,000,000 units per dose?
