Why would you like to study Pharmacy?
There are three main reasons why pharmacy appeals to me:I like the idea of working independently as an individual in treating patients, improving their quality of life, whilst very much supported within a team environment.
From my work experience, I was attracted to the energy and enthusiasm around the profession, and from speaking to pharmacists, I have learnt how fulfilling and rewarding a career it can be.
I have also seen how pharmacy is always evolving; you have great flexibility to diversify learn new skills.
If a patient requires 750ml in 4 hours of an intravenous medication, what is the desired flow rate?
(Give your answer to 3 significant figures)
750ml over 4 hours
‘X’ ml over 1 hour
750/4 = 187.5
‘X’ = 187.5 ml/hour
= 186ml/hour (3 significant figures)
You are required to give a patient 4.0g of a new chemotherapy agent Busapar. This comes as a 30% (w/v) solution in bags containing 750ml. What volume of the 750ml bag would you have remaining after preparing the required solution?
Please provide your answer to 2 decimal places.
1% = 1g in 100ml
30% = 30g in 100ml
30g = 100ml
4g = 13.33ml
750ml – 13.33ml = 736.67ml
