Convert ug to mL

I’m so confused I don’t know how to convert ug to mL.The dose is 10 ug/kg and the patients weight is 60 kg. The solution is available in 2 forms: 1 mL single use vial containing 300 ug or a 1.6 ml single use containing 480 ug.

Now the questions are...What is the daily dose?
How many mLs would be drawn up to for each single injection?

The patient dose is weight-based dose (10 µg/kg) x patient weight (60 kg) or 600 µg. I can't tell from the wording of your question whether this is each dose or the daily dose, divided into a number of smaller doses..

The conversion to volume depends on the concentration or strength of the medicine. Both forms have a concentration of 300 µg/mL, and you have to divide by it (or multiply by the inverse)
600 µg x 1 mL/300 µg = 2 mL

Re: Convert

This is the full question
A patient is given a solution for 8 days. The dose is 10ug/kg/day as a single inj each day. The patient weight 60 kg. The soloution is available in 2 forms: 1 ml containing 300ug or 1.6 mL containing 480 ug.

Now the questions are...
What is the daily dose?
How many mLs would be drawn up for single inj?
Which vial would I use?
How many vials would u dispense for 8 days?

So you give 600 µg or 2 mL once a day, as previously worked out.
Neither vial is big enough. I don't know if it is feasible to get every last drop out of the vials, but at least 2 of the 1 mL vials must be used each day.
