How to calculate Corticosteroid Equivalence conversion - Tutorial

Definition:

Corticosteroid Equivalence Converter is used to find Target Fluid solution.

Example:

A steroid equivalence hydrocortisone with 8mg Converted into Paramethasone

Given,

Hydrocortisone = Dose 8mg

To find,

Steroid Potency, Duration, Dose

Solution:
Steroid Potency
Hydrocortisone 1
Cortisone 0.8
Prednisolone 4
Prednisone 4
Methylprednisolone 5
Triamcinolone 5
Paramethasone 10
Dexamethasone 25
Betamethasone 30
Steroid Duration
Hydrocortisone Short
Cortisone Short
Prednisolone Intermediate
Prednisone Intermediate
Methylprednisolone Intermediate
Triamcinolone Intermediate
Paramethasone Long
Dexamethasone Long
Betamethasone Long
Step1:

Hydrocortisone Potency is : 1 with Dose 8 mg Paramethasone Potency is : 10

Step2:

Hydrocortisone Durationis is : Short Paramethasone Duration is : Long

Step3:

Paramethasone Dose = 8 x (Hydrocortisone Potency / Paramethasone Potency) ParamethasoneDose = 8 x (1/10) Paramethasone Dose = 0.8
