The doctor orders Ceclor elixir 25
mg/kg for a child who weighs 20.4 lbs.
The available Ceclor elixir contains 250
mg per 5 ml. A nurse must determine
the proper dose for the child.

4
Problem Solving by a Nurse

 The nurse converts the child’s weight from
standard pounds (20.4 lbs.) to metric kilograms
(9.26 kg) and uses a calculator to quickly
calculate a dose of:

 25 X 9.26 (250/5) = 11,575

Could this be correct??

5
Problem Solving by a Nurse

 11, 575 is clearly too large for a drug dose.

 The nurse can check the calculation by re-writing the
equation with units rather than just with numbers (unit
analysis).

 (mg/kg) X (kg) X (mg/ml) = (mg2/ml)

 The dose should be in (ml) not (mg2/ml)

6
Problem Solving by a Nurse

 Now calculate the following by first estimating:
(25 mg/kg) X (9.26kg) X (5 ml/250 mg) = ?

 25 X 10 X (1/50) = 250/50 = 5 ml

 The dose should be approximately 5 (ml).

7
Problem Solving by a Nurse

The nurse uses a calculator to quickly calculate
the following to obtain the correct dosage:
(25 mg/kg) X (9.26kg) X (5 ml/250 mg) = 4.63 ml

This makes sense and is close to the estimation
of 5 ml.

(English)

A. Language
 A1 Demonstrate control of standard English through
the use of grammar, punctuation, capitalization and
spelling.
 A6 Recognize nuances in the meanings of words;
choose words precisely to enhance communication.
 A7 Comprehend and communicate quantitative,
technical and mathematical information.

(Mathematics)

 Geometry (and measurement)
 K8.1 – Understand that numerical values

associated with measurements of physical
quantities must be assigned units of
measurement or dimensions; apply such units
correctly in expressions, equations and problem
solutions that involve measurements; and convert
a measurement to another unit of measurement.

11
(Mathematics)

 Number Sense and Numerical Operations
 I1.1 – Add, subtract, multiply and divide integers, fractions
and decimals.
 I1.2 – Calculate and apply ratios, proportions, rates and
percentages to solve problems.
 I4.1 Use calculators appropriately and make estimations
without a calculator regularly to detect potential errors.
 Algebra
 J5.1- Recognize and solve problems that can be modeled
using a linear equation in one variable, such as
time/rate/distance problems, percentage increase or decrease
problems, and ratio and proportion problems.
