Dobutamine Calculation

Dobutamine Calculation

1 ampule = 250mg/5ml
Amount of drug needed in 50ml solution
Amount of drug = body weight x 3
Example : 70kg x 3 = 210 mg

Amount of drug in ml = 210mgx5ml = 4.2ml
                                             250mg

Preparation : 45.8 ml NSS + 4.2ml drug = 50ml

Rate of infusion : mcg x body weight x 60 min 
                                        Drug concentration

Example : 4mcg x 70kg x 60 = 4ml/hr
                   4200 mcg/ml
