help convert meq
I need to convert this. I need 15 meq= ? ml if 20 meq=15ml

#2




Re: help convert meq
mEq is milliequivalent. Its a relative amount of substance.
I am not exactly sure how you would calculate the conversion, but I'm sure it depends on the substance. So you'll need to post additional information. If you post not just the substance, but also exactly what you are trying to do, it will make it easier for us to help.

Help!
I can't figure out this conversion for some home work and my text book is no help!
I need to administer Sodium Bicarb with a concentration of 0.45 ml/kg at a dose of 0.5 mEq/kg and I can't figure out how to convert between ml and mEq. Thanks.

A "concentration" of 45 mL/kg does not make sense. I believe there is something wrong with this figure. Sodium bicarbonate is a solid powder. Concentration would be expressed as a mass, or number of moles in either a mass or volume of mixture. It is conceivable that at a specified strength, it is a massbased dose.

meq/Kg to mval/g

Re: Please help convert from mg to mEq
10 mg of potassium = [How many?] meq ?

#7




Re: Please help convert from mg to mEq
For potassium, a mole and an equivalent are the same amount (because the valence of the potassium ion is +1). The molar mass is 39.0983 g.
Thus 10 mg x 1 mol/39.0983 g = 256 µmol ( or µEq) So 0.256 mEq

Re: help convert meq
Do you mean sodium bicarbonate? If so 1 eqv = 1 mol.
