Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Help me please!

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.
