1 A Med Math

1 A Med Math (Kg-g-mg-mcg)

QuestionAnswer
Which way do you move the decimal to go from a Larger unit to a smaller unit (mg-mcg)? LmnopqrS Larger to Smaller the decimal moves in the direction of L-S.
Rationale to which way you move the decimal to go Larger to Smaller units? Think of L-S as it is in the alphabet LmnopqrS. Larger to Smaller the decimal would move 3 places towards the RIGHT in the direction of L-S. 1.kg=1000.g, 1.g=1000.mg, 1.mg=1000.mcg, 1.g=1000,000mcg
The 1st factor needed to answer a medication math question is? ”What is the question asking for?” That would be found as one of three options. 1.mls or mgs or tabs, 2.ml/hr or U/hr or gtt/min, 3.mg/kg/day or mcg/kg/min
There are basically 3 types of math questions. What are they? The 3 types of math; are Q's that ask for: 1.mls or mgs or tabs, 2.ml/hr or U/hr or gtt/min, 3.mg/kg/day or mcg/kg/min
1Kg=_____g 1Kg=1000g
1g=______mg 1g=1000mg
1mg=____mcg 1mg=1000mcg
1L=_____ml 1L=1000ml
1dosage cup=___ml 1dosage cup=30ml
1Kg=____g 1Kg=1000g
1g=______mg 1g=1000mg
1mg=_____mcg 1mg=1000mcg
To go from a Larger unit to a Smaller unit which way do you move the decimal point? (LmnopqrS)Larger unit to smaller unit move in the direction of L-S
What is one easy way to remember which way you move the decimal point? Trying to remember to move the decimal point "To the Left" or "To the Right" is confusing. (LmnopqrS)this helps remember that moving the decimal point in the direction from L-S is how you move from a Larger unit to a Smaller unit (1mg-1000mcg)
What is another easy way to remember which way you move the decimal point? Write the units (Kg-g-mg-mcg)just like this and that is the direction to move the decimal point. (1.Kg=1000.g) (.001Kg=1.g) from Kg to g the decimal moved 3 places toward the g. To move from g to Kg the decimal moved 3 places back towards the Kg.
Do you need to learn all the conversions to go from smaller to larger? No need to learn all the numbers in permanent memory for smaller to larger just know which direction to move the decimal and be familiar with what the numbers look like.
Kg-g-mg-mcg To go from a Larger unit to a Smaller unit which way do you move the decimal point? (Kg-g-mg-mcg)that is the direction you move the decimal point. (1.Kg=1000.g) (0.001Kg=1.0g=1g)
0.001mg=____mcg 0.001mg=1.0mcg (1.0mcg is the same as 1mcg)
0.001g=______mg 0.001g=1.0mg(1mg)
0.001Kg=_____g 0.001Kg=1.0(1g)
Name a common household item that weighs close to a Kg. A small bag of sugar =2 lbs. (1 Kg= 2.2 lbs.)
Name a common household item that weighs 1g. Small paper clip =1g.
