The nurse is caring for a client who has an order for Diuril. Directions say to reconstitute with 20 mL of sterile water. This will provide a concentration of _______mg/mL.
Solution: Convert grams to milligrams: 0.5 g = 500 mg . Divide milligrams of Diuril by millileters of sterile water for reconstitution: 500 mg/20 mL . Solve the equation: 25 mg/mL. Reconstitution with 20 mL of sterile water yields a concentration of 25 mg/mL .
