I think there were 2 questions I couldn't answer and that mainly is because I am not a math person, and also do not deal with those types of calculations. If I am wrong on ANY of these questions, someone please correct me!!!!

Obviously you can't find the answers anywhere; these are simple math!! i know this is an old q but i wanted to point out an error in the heparin q. ***A 55 lb child is to receive heparin sodium by IV Infusion in a dose of 50 units/kg of body weight every 4 hours. How many milliliters of heparin sodium injection containing 5000 units/ml will be administered for each dose? 50 units/kg q 4 h 55 lb=25 kg so 50 units/kg x 25 kg= 1250 units q 4 h Since it has 5000 units/ml 1250 units/5000units in 1 mL = 0.25 mL

Sidra is very smart. A simple conversion, every kg = 2.2lb. To put it in a way my profesor taught me, a little easier to understand why Sidra did it the way she did... First you need to find out how many units the patient needs so it goes as follows 50 units ___ X __
Meaning, if for every 2.2 lbs (1kg) the patient needs 50 units, how many units does he need for 55lbs? It's a proportions! (or however you say it english). So you multiply 50 x 55, then divide what you get by 2.2lb and you have how many units he needs. 
Maeris 91 months ago 
Always remember that in proportions the units of the product or math go next to each other, for example ml __ ml

Maeris 91 months ago 
Now the "every 4 hours" thing is irrevelant to what the question is, so don't pay attention to it. Now that you know how many units he's going to take, you can find out how many ml he'll need. The question being: If in each ml there are 5000 units, how many ml do you need for 1250: 1250 units __ 5000 units __
This meaning, 1250 x 1ml, then divided by 5000 units, resulting 0.25ml. Hope you understand it better! 
Maeris 91 months ago 
Oh, bugger, those examples of conversions came out bad (the lines underneath the numbers. let me do it like Sidra: 50units/ 2.2lb = X units/ 55lb and the other one was 1250units/ Xml = 5000units/1ml the other was just an example of: mg/ml = mg/ml

A couple of these questions are a little new to me, at least the hospital inventory ones. The number ones are easy to make out with conversions/proportions. Isnt' the DEA number the whole, it either starts with an A or B, then the second letter belonging to the last name of the doctor and then a 5 digit number? Kinda like:

Maeris said: A couple of these questions are a little new to me, at least the hospital inventory ones. DEA number contains 2 letters first one must be a A or B then the second letter must be the doctors last name and it has 7 numbers.

***Ketoconazole 2% in polyethylene glycol is commonly used for ringworm treatment. To compound a pint of this solution, the pharm tech must weigh what amount of ketoconazole? 2% means ketoconazole is initially in 2g/100ml,
2g/100ml = xg/480ml

sunhee in Katy, Texas 87 months ago 
So, you need to weigh 9.6 ml of ketoconazole.

***Which of the following meds require a DEA Form 222 when ordering?
DURAGESIC BECAUSE THIS IS SCHEDULE II DRUG What is the percentage concentration of a 400 mg/500 ml solution? 400mg * 1g/1000mg = 0.4 g
Using a standard heparin solution (25,000 units / 500ml D5W), how many milliliters per hour should the infusion rate be to achieve a dose of 1100 units/hour? 500ML/25000U *1100U/1HR=22ML/HR
