Question: in the case of a serious allergic reaction diphenhydramine may...

Question details

In the case of a serious allergic reaction, diphenhydramine may be administered to a patient by means of a slow IV or deep IM injection. An adult dose consists of 50 mg based on 1 m2 of body surface area (BSA) in solution, and the injection rate must not be greater than 25 mg/min for a single administration. Use the BSA rule to calculate a pediatric dose for a patient with a body surface area of 1.275 m^2, and determine the injection rate if this dose is administered over a 2-min period. (2.55 is not the correct answer)
