Morphine Sulfate Notes May Draw 10 mg (1ml) into a syringe and mix with 9ml of normal saline. This creates a 1mg/1ml concentration for better control when administering the medication
What is the Classification for Activated Charcoal Adsorbent
What is the Mechanism of Action for Activated Charcoal Binds (adsorbs) toxic substances inhibiting gastrointestinal absorption, leaving less toxic substance in body circulation; increasing fecal elimination of drug/charcoal complex
