8 mL. Percent solutions represent grams per 100 mL  Move the decimal place to the right and this value = mg/mL (i. lidocaine 2% = 20 mg/mL)  Most cartridges = 1. .  Therefore.8 mL x 20 mg/mL = 36 mg.e. one cartridge of 2% lidocaine contains 1.

8 mL  Therefore maximum dose = 2. therefore maximum dose = 4.4 mL / 1.4 mL  Each cartridge = 1.6 mg/kg x 20 kg = 132 mg  3% mepivacaine = 30 mg/mL  132 mg / (30 mg/mL) = 4.8 mL.4 cartridges .Mepivacaine  6.

7mg/kg x 25kg = 175mg  Lidocaine 2% = 2g/100ml = 2000mg/100ml = 20mg/ml • Maximum amount = 175mg/(20mg/ml) = 8.8ml • Maximum catridge = 8.8ml = 4. Maximum dose is 7mg/kg.75ml/1.75ml  Each catridge = 1.86 catridge . up to 500mg • For 25kg child.
