Medications are ordered in grams or fractions, like micrograms or milligrams Medications are ordered in grams or fractions, like micrograms or milligrams
1 milligram is 1000 times smaller than 1 gram so 1000 milligram = 1 gram 1 milligram is 1000 times smaller than 1 gram so 1000 milligram = 1 gram
1 microgram is 1000 times smaller than a 1 milligram and 1 million times smaller than 1 gram 1 microgram is 1000 times smaller than a 1 milligram and 1 million times smaller than 1 gram
It takes 1 million mcg = 1 gram It takes 1 million mcg = 1 gram
Kilo grams are very large and are not used for measuring medication Kilo grams are very large and are not used for measuring medication
Kilograms are 1000 times larger than a gram ( 1 kg = 1000 g ) Kilograms are 1000 times larger than a gram ( 1 kg = 1000 g )
Kilograms is used to denote weights of clients, upon med doses are based Kilograms is used to denote weights of clients, upon med doses are based
Volume = Liter Volume = Liter
1000 mL = 1 Liter 1000 mL = 1 Liter
1 mL = 0.001 L 1 mL = 0.001 L
cc = cubic centimeters cc = cubic centimeters
cc & milli Liters are same cc & milli Liters are same
1 L = 1000 mL 1 L = 1000 mL
1 kilogram = 1000 grams 1 kilogram = 1000 gram
1 gram = 1000 milligrams 1 gram = 1000 milligrams
1 milligram = 1000 micrograms 1 milligram = 1000 micrograms
1 liter = 1000 milliliters (mL) 1 liter = 1000 milliliters (mL)
1 quart = 1000 mL 1 quart = 1000 mL
1 pint = 500 mL 1 pint = 500 mL
metric system is based on the decimal system metric system is based on the decimal system
metric conversions can be made by dividing or multiplying by 1000 metric conversions can be made by dividing or multiplying by 1000
1 kg = 1000 grams 1 kg = 1000 grams
1 gram = 1000 mg 1 gram = 1000 mg
1 mg = 1000 mcg 1 mg = 1000 mcg
1 Liter = 1000 mL 1 Liter = 1000 mL
to convert smaller to larger (divide-move decimal 3 left ) example: 100 mL = .100 L or 0.1 L to convert smaller to larger (divide-move decimal 3 left ) example: 100 mL = .100 L or 0.1 L
100 mL = ? Liters 0.1 Liters
50 mg = ? g 0.05 g
0.75 grams = ? milligrams 750 mg
0.04 kg = ? grams 40 grams
micrograms = grams...[ smaller < Larger 3 x] micrograms = grams...[ smaller < Larger 3 x]
grams = mcg...[ Larger > smaller 3 x] grams = mcg...[ Larger > smaller 3 x]
