I need help! How do you convert milligrams to milliters? My question is...The doctor orders 1 milligram of epinephring I.V. The medication comes as 0.1 mg/ml. How many milliliters will you give? Can some on please assist me?

Have you asked the doctor?

Assuming you can't:

mg is mass, ml is volume, to convert from one to other requires density, which you have (0.1mg/ml), so...

If you want 1mg, this is 10 times 0.1mg, so as 0.1mg=1ml, this suggests you need 10ml.

BUT AS THIS APPEARS TO BE MEDICATION, YOU REALLY SHOULD SEEK CLARIFICATION FROM A SUITABLE HEALTH PROFESSIONAL.
