1. In some patients, an allergic reaction may take the severe form of anaphylaxis. In such cases, epinephrine, a typically fast-acting bronchodilator, is sometimes administered by continuous IV infusion. If an adult dose is delivered at a rate of 4 micrograms per minute, and the concentration of the epinephrine solution is 1 mg/250 ml, then how many milliliters must be available for a one hour infusion?
|Albuterol, a bronchodilator of the beta-2 adrenergic drug type, can be administered by nebulizer or inhaler. A nebulizer treatment for an adult patient consists of 2.5 mg of albuterol in the form of albuterol sulfate solution. This is administered from 5 to 15 minutes, three to four times a day. If the concentration of the solution is 1.25 mg/3 ml, how many milliliters are required for four administrations?|
