Most drugs in children are dosed according to body weight (mg/kg) or body surface area (BSA) (mg/m 2). Care must be taken to properly convert body weight from pounds to kilograms (1 kg= 2.2 lb) before calculating doses based on body weight Body-surface area estimates are more accurate for calculation of paediatric doses than body weight since many physiological phenomena correlate better to body surface area Dosing information for obese children is limited and has been identified as an area for research. Obese children can be dosed using ideal body weight and the dose adjusted based on clinical effect. They are at higher risk of toxicity from drugs such as paracetamol that do not distribute into fat, if actual weight is used to calculate the dose

Due to ethical, technical and regulatory restrictions, pharmacokinetic and clinical studies in the pediatric population are scarce [ 5 ]. Thus, pediatric dose is calculated from that of adult using the empirical formulae [ 6, 7] based on the size, age, weight and body surface area (BSA) of pediatric patients ** Min dosage for each single dose: 200 mg 3 doses = 66**.7 mg/dose Max dosage for each single dose: 400 mg 3 doses = 133.3 mg/dose The single dosage range is 66.7 to 133.3 mg/dose Decide if the ordered dosage is safe. The ordered dosage is 200 mg q 8 hr, and the allowable, safe dosage is 66.7 to 133.3 mg/dose. NO thi **Dose** **calculation**. Many children's **doses** are standardised by weight (and therefore require multiplying by the **body**-weight in kilograms to determine the child's **dose**); occasionally, the **doses** have been standardised by **body** **surface** **area** (in m 2).These methods should be used rather than attempting to calculate a child's **dose** on the basis of **doses** used in adults The most common estimate is the Holliday-Segar formula, which uses patient weight to calculate metabolic expenditure in kcal/24 hours, which approximates fluid needs in mL/24 hours (see Holliday-Segar Formula for Maintenance Fluid Requirements by Weight). More complex calculations (eg, those using body surface area) are rarely required

** In physiology and medicine, the body surface area (BSA) is the measured or calculated surface area of a human body**.For many clinical purposes, BSA is a better indicator of metabolic mass than body weight because it is less affected by abnormal adipose mass. Nevertheless, there have been several important critiques of the use of BSA in determining the dosage of medications with a narrow. The inaccuracy of body surface area-dosing is more than an inconvenience and it is important that methods for more accurate dose calculation are determined, based on the known drug elimination..

Optimising the dosing of medicines for neonates and children remains a challenge. The importance of pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) research is recognised both in medicines regulation and paediatric clinical pharmacology, yet there remain barriers to undertaking high-quality PK and PD studies. While these studies are essential in understanding the dose-concentration-effect. 2 organization of the presentations • part 2: typical radiation dose values, risks & dealing with public - n.e.x.t. surveys - reference values - fetal dose calculation guides - review of some biological risks - dealing with the public - with references patient radiation doses in diagnosti

There are, however, no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant. Analysis revealed several factors, or types of errors, associated with medication errors involving patient weight (see Figure 4). The three most commonly identified factors, documented weight too high (23.8%, n = 307), confusion between pounds and kilograms (23.2%, n = 300), and documented weight too low (14.9%, n = 192) were found in more than 60% (n = 799) of event reports Chatelut, E. et al.

A dose is a measured quantity of a medicine, nutrient, or pathogen which is delivered as a unit. The greater the quantity delivered, the larger the dose. Doses are most commonly measured for compounds in medicine. The term is usually applied to the quantity of a drug or other agent administered for therapeutic purposes, but may be used to describe any case where a substance is introduced to. Doses may also be given three times daily by administering one-third of the total daily dose every 8 hours. For adult dosage calculation, use a ratio of 400 mg of erythromycin activity as the ethylsuccinate to 250 mg of erythromycin activity as the stearate, base or estolate The dosing recommendation in these pediatric patients varies according to age group and is weight-based [see Dosage and Administration ]. Pediatric use information in pediatric patients less than 4 years of age as adjunctive therapy in the treatment of partial onset seizures is approved for UCB, Inc.'s levetiracetam tablets and oral solution Any vaccination using less than the appropriate dose (e.g., pediatric formulation hepatitis A vaccine given to an adult) does not count and the dose should be repeated according to age unless serologic testing indicates an adequate response has developed (however, if two half-volume formulations of vaccine are administered on the same clinic. Body surface area (BSA) estimates are sometimes preferable to body-weight for calculation of paediatric doses since many physiological phenomena correlate better with body surface area. Body surface area can be estimated from weight. For more information, refer to BNF for Children

Common calculation errors, which can have more serious effects in pediatric versus adult patients, include unit conversion errors, miscalculation of body surface area, incorrect drip rate calculations, and weight-based errors (e.g., calculating on the basis of dry versus actual weight, expressing weight as pounds instead of kilograms. One FTU is equivalent to 0.5 grams of topical medication and covers 2 hand prints (1.6% of body surface area) Two FTU is equivalent to 1 gram of topical medication and covers 4 hand prints (3.2% of body surface area These problems are a type of pediatric dosage calculations. Formula: Weight in Kg * Dosage Per Kg = Y (Required Dosage) Example: A doctor orders 200 mg of Rocephin to be taken by a 15.4 lb infant every 8 hours. The medication label shows that 75-150 mg/kg per day is the appropriate dosage range. Is this doctor's order within the desired range Use of IV RhIG may be considered if the amount of RhIG needed is large or the patient is at increased risk of injury from IM injections, but is not available in all institutions. One full standard dose of RhIG will be sufficient to cover at least 5 adult doses of pooled whole blood derived platelets or 7 doses of apheresis platelets

The four main methods currently available to estimate the first drug dose for an infant are all based on the established dose for adults. The methods are: (i) identifying age-based categories on the basis of which the dosage adjustments can be made; (ii) normalisation of a dose to bodyweight; (iii) use of body surface area (BSA) as a guide to drug dosage; and (iv) use of an allometric method 1. Since patient weight is used to calculate most dosing (either as weight-based dosing, body surface area calculation, or other age-appropriate dose determination), all pediatric patients should be weighed in kilograms at the time of admission (including outpatient and ambulatory clinics) or within four hours of admission in an emergency. For pediatric medications dosed according to weight. Includes the mg/kg dose (or mg/kg/hour, mcg/kg/min, or similar weight-based dosing formula) and the total calculated dose or a prompt for the prescriber to calculate and enter the total dose; Includes frequency of reweighing patient for calculation of proper dose

Pediatric dosing describes the calculation from an adult-appropriate milligrams per kilogram per day--mg/kg/day--to child-safe dosages 1. Determine child-safe dosages using the child's body weight. This calculation is not always completely accurate and requires a great deal of understanding about the medication that you are administering A nurse working in a cancer center is preparing to administer medication to a 5-year-old child. The nurse will calculate the drug dosage by using: body surface area: A nurse is caring for a 10-year-old boy who complains of chronic headaches. His mother reports that she gives him Tylenol at least three times a day Many children's doses in BNFC are standardised by body-weight. Occasionally, some doses in BNFC are standardised by Body Surface Area. Wherever possible, doses are expressed in terms of a definite frequency (e.g. if the dose is 1mg/kg twice daily, a child of body-weight 9kg would receive 9mg twice daily) Pharmacists can help prevent medication errors by checking dosing calculations, screening for drug-drug interactions, and counseling caregivers on proper administration and medication-storage safety tips. Drug safety is paramount in pediatric patients, owing to an alarming number of adverse events caused by medications

The dose is expressed as amount of drug per body surface area in m 2, as shown in the equation below: (amount states that the normal pediatric dosing regimen for Spironolactone is 1 to 3 mg per kg per day. In this case, the weight of the child is 22 lbs, which equals 22 lbs/(2.2 lbs/kg) = 10 kg. A number of countries have adopted the. 1973 using data from 249 men with creatinine clearance (C Cr) from approximately 30 to BY AGE IN PEOPLE WITHOUT CKD 130 mL/m2.

Is the route of administration safe and proper for this. ** Reproduction studies have been performed in rats and mice using oral doses of up to 100mg/kg (0**.8 and 0.4 times the maximum daily human dose based upon body surface area, respectively) and I.V. doses of up to 30 mg/kg (0.24 and 0.12 times up to 10

Gy∙cm2 is a unit historically known as dose-area product (DAP) and currently named kerma-area product (KAP). The official notation recommended in ICRU report 74 is PKA. KAP represents the product of the dose (in mGy, cGy or Gy) at the center of a certain plane of the X-ray beam (e.g. the surface of the patient) multiplied by the area of the X. The integrated dosage calculation tool is of great importance in the pediatric setting because dangerous calculation errors—often by the power of 10, for example—can be reduced (35, e21, e22) ** Gentamicin (gentamicin injection pediatric) Injection is a sterile, nonpyrogenic, aqueous solution for parenteral administration and is available both with and without preservatives**..

For children aged 36 months (3 years) through 17 years and adults aged ≥18 years, the dose volume for IIVs is 0.5 mL per dose, with the exception of Fluzone High-Dose Quadrivalent (HD-IIV4, licensed for persons aged ≥65 years), for which the correct volume is 0.7 mL per dose

Within a single prescription, an inexperienced prescriber might have to establish a child's correct weight, reconcile conflicting information about an unlicensed product, interpret a complex dosing regimen, calculate an accurate dose and communicate this to parents. Figure 2 shows how these factors inter-relate to increase risk of errors Recommended dosage adjustments for adults with renal impairment are shown in Table 2. Information is unavailable for dosage adjustments in pediatric patients with renal impairment. In order to calculate the dose recommended for adult patients with renal impairment, creatinine clearance adjusted for body surface area must be calculated Organ absorbed doses and effective doses can be used to compare radiation exposure among medical imaging procedures, compare alternative imaging options, and guide dose optimization efforts. Individual dose estimates are important for relatively radiosensitive patient populations such as children and for radiosensitive organs such as the eye lens Either body surface area (BSA)-based dosing or stratified per-kilogram dosing (ie, different per-kilogram dose in different age groups) should be considered. In either case, PK/PD dose ranging studies across all age groups are necessary, especially in the youngest (100% agreement) Burn injury is a leading cause of unintentional death and injury in children, with the majority being minor (less than 10%). However, a significant number of children sustain burns greater than 15% total body surface area (TBSA), leading to the initiation of the systemic inflammatory response syndrome. These patients require IV fluid resuscitation to prevent burn shock and death

- Numerous studies have been conducted to establish a comprehensive dosing formula for neonates, infants, and children who undergo tremendous developmental changes in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics [].Recently, Anderson and Holford [] reported that adult doses may be scaled down to pediatric doses using a child/adult body surface area (BSA) ratio or an allometric scaling factor (exponent.

ASCO Guidelines for appropriate chemotherapy dosing in obese adults with cancer: Utilize patient's actual body weight (full weight) for calculation of body surface area- or weight-based dosing, particularly when the intent of therapy is curative; manage regimen-related toxicities in the same manner as for nonobese patients; if a dose reduction. The growing acceptance and recognition of Surface Guided Radiation Therapy (SGRT) as a promising imaging technique has supported its recent spread in a large number of radiation oncology facilities. Although this technology is not new, many aspects of it have only recently been exploited. This review focuses on the latest SGRT developments, both in the field of general clinical applications. Doses of miglitol up to 4 and 3 times the human dose (based on body surface area), for rats and rabbits respectively, did not reveal evidence of impaired fertility or harm to the fetus. The highest doses tested in these studies, 450 mg/kg in the rat and 200 mg/kg in the rabbit promoted maternal and/or fetal toxicity

Optimal doses of chemotherapy drugs or drug combinations are generally established through randomized controlled clinical trials (RCTs). In adult patients with cancer, drug dosing has traditionally been based on a patient's estimated body surface area (BSA). 1 There exists compelling evidence that reductions from standard dose and dose-intensity may compromise disease-free survival (DFS) and. Weigh the patient. (If body surface area is used for fluid therapy calculations, measure height or length to determine surface area.) This weight should be used for calculations and not the weight from a previous office visit or hospital record.
