    Salt recommendations On average, adults in the UK eat about 8.1g of salt (3.2g sodium) a day. This may not sound like much, but to reduce the risk of high blood pressure, it is recommended that adults should not be eating more than 6g of salt (2.4g sodium) a day.Salt intakes should be much lower than this for babies and children. Babies under 12 months old should have less than 1g of salt a day. The daily recommended maximum amount of salt children should eat depends on their age:
    • 1 to 3 years – 2g of salt a day (0.8g sodium)
    • 4 to 6 years – 3g of salt a day (1.2g sodium)
    • 7 to 10 years – 5g of salt a day (2g sodium)
    • 11 years and over – 6g of salt a day (2.4g sodium)

    Exactly - so 4.5g isn't really gonna kill anyone

    I think that's talking about oral salt consumption in food not injectable saline. The saline is used to dilute.

    My thoughts are that you work out the amiodarone dilution then work out how much they would be getting over an hr with the flow rate. and see if that matches withthe reccommendation which is like 200mg/hr or something.

    Where would be best to post this question, medicine?

    If there is a possibility that some of these answer choices are ruled out because they are medically unsafe, then it might be better there.

    Otherwise if the medical situation is just a context, it's fine here

    I think I figured it out:Amiodarone sterile conc.=50mg/ml. https://www.medicines.org.uk/emc/medicine/26034 and just realised it is compatabile with 5% glucose and not sodium so that rules out the NaCl solution ones. As 80kg X 5= 400mg= 400mg/120 minutesTarget rate = 200mg/hr A: (10mlX30mg)/500= 0.6g/ml X170ml/hr= 102mg/hrB: 6X50mg= 300mg/500=0.6mg/ml X253ml= 151.8mg/hrC: 8X50= 400mg/250ml= 1.6mg/mlX 129=206.4mg/hrD: 8X50= 400mg/250ml= 1.6mg/mlX 129=206.4mg/hrE: 8X50= 400mg/500ml= 0/8mg/mlX 254= 203.2mg/hr
    So E is closest to 200mg/hr?

    Does that sound correct?
