## calculate eatinine clearance for the following patient

1. Using the Cockcroft-Gault equation, calculate creatinine clearance for the following patient: 70 year old female, 5’6” tall, 150 lb, SCr = 1.2 mg/dL. Round your answer to the nearest 1 mL/min.

6. From question #5 – how many mL would this be (using 400 mg/5 mL concentration)? Round your answer to the nearest 0.5 mL.

7. A 2 month old weighing 9 lbs presents with erosive esophagitis. This will be treated with ranitidine (Zantac®) 10 mg/kg/day in 2 divided doses. Ranitidine comes as a 15 mg/mL concentration. How many milliliters would be recommended for each dose? Round your answer to the nearest 0.1 mL.

8. From question #7 – how many mL would be needed for a 30 day supply? Round your answer to the nearest 5 mL but be sure to give adequate supply.

9. A mother of a 4 year old weighing 30 lbs calls your office asking for dosing recommendations for ibuprofen (Motrin®) for a fever. Recommended dosing is 5-10 mg/kg every 6-8 hours as needed. Ibuprofen suspension concentration is 100 mg/5 mL. What range, in milliliters, would be appropriate for this patient for each dose? Round your answer to the nearest 0.5 mL.

10. From question #9 – the mother decides that she would rather use acetaminophen (Tylenol®). Dosing recommendation is 10-15 mg/kg/dose and the suspension concentration is 160 mg/5 mL. What range, in milliliters, would be appropriate for this patient for each dose? Round your answer to the nearest 0.1 mL.
