How many ml of potassium chloride do I give?
By proportion this equals 3.75 ml. But, that's a very small amount for someone hypocholemic. Typically the KCl is in powder form, usually dispensed in a capsule of 20 meq but ml would indicate it is a liquid. Is it in a liquid base? I don't know where your doctor is going with this Rx. To illustrate, one cup of orange juice is already at 13 meq potassium. So, weird question.
