A child with septicemia has an antibiotic clearance ...
That's so infuriating I stared at this question for 20 minutes thinking I did something wrong
lol..my math never worked either. I also just chose the closest number. also, screw this question author for doing that.
this is why you never waste 7 minutes on a question.... because of shit like this
Why the FUCK did they not just give us a clearance of 0.1 if they're going to fuckin round it anyways...
in ur maths, why did u put 24h/1day and not 1day/24h? if the given Cl was 0.09L/hr/kg. I know it just is a math question, but i´d appreciate if someone could explain it.
LMAO games NBME plays
magic math!!!!! how TF r we supposed to know when they round and when they don't like wtf im so pissed someone please tell me step isn't like this...with such precise decimal answers and a calculator fxn you would assume they wanted an actual answer!
Equation is Maintenance dose = (concentration at steady state) * (Clearance)
if you convert all the units to what it wanted them in (mg/kg/day) you'll get 25.92 like weird-in said above
I didn't think to round 0.09 to 0.1 of course so I guessed 2.5 assuming I must have done a conversion wrong and was off by a tenth .... BOO bad Q
