Viewers are guided through calculating a pediatric safe dose for a patient weighing 48 lbs, and prescribed 850 mg of medication to be taken orally every 8 hours. The safe dose range for this patient is 100 to 300 mg/kg/day, divided over three doses. The tutorial demonstrates converting the patient’s weight to kilograms, calculating the total daily dose in milligrams, and then dividing this by the number of doses per day to ensure the prescription falls within the safe range. The methodical explanation confirms that the ordered dose is safe, highlighting the importance of precision in pediatric medication dosing.
