Young's rule is a rule for evaluating the dosage of medicine for a child by adding 12 to the child's age, and dividing the sum by the age of the child, then dividing the adult dose by the result obtained.
A 10 year old girl / 60 Lbs with 300mg Average adult dose is given for the girl.Calculate the child's pediatric dose.
Age of child = 10 year Average Adult dose = 300mg
Child's pediatric dose
Child's dose = (Age of child / (Age of child + 12)) x Average adult dose = (10 / (10 + 12)) x 300 mg = (10 / 22) x 300mg = (0.45454545454) x 300 mg = 136.363636364 mg
