The mathematical formulas used in the given are as follows:

For the condition ‘diuretic’:

  • Dose: dose = 5 * weight
  • Total Volume: totalVolume = dose / concentration

For the conditions ‘glaucoma’ and ‘seizures’:

  • Dose: dose = Math.min(30 * weight, Math.max(8 * weight, weight))
  • Total Volume: totalVolume = dose / concentration
  • Divided Volume:
  • For ‘glaucoma’: dividedVolume = totalVolume / 3
  • For ‘seizures’: dividedVolume = totalVolume / 2

Here are three examples based on the given code:

Example 1:

  • Condition: diuretic
  • Weight: 70 kg
  • Concentration: 25 mg/ml

Using the formula, we can calculate the dose and total volume:

  • Dose: dose = 5 * 70 = 350 mg
  • Total Volume: totalVolume = 350 mg / 25 mg/ml = 14 ml

Result: The dose should be 350 mg (14.00 ml) once daily.

Example 2:

  • Condition: glaucoma
  • Weight: 60 kg
  • Concentration: 25 mg/ml

Using the formula, we can calculate the dose, total volume, and divided volume:

  • Dose: dose = Math.min(30 * 60, Math.max(8 * 60, 60)) = Math.min(1800, 480, 60) = 480 mg
  • Total Volume: totalVolume = 480 mg / 25 mg/ml = 19.2 ml
  • Divided Volume: dividedVolume = 19.2 ml / 3 = 6.4 ml

Result: The total dose should be 480 mg (19.20 ml), divided into 3 doses per day. Each dose will be approximately 6.40 ml.

Example 3:

  • Condition: seizures
  • Weight: 50 kg
  • Concentration: 25 mg/ml

Using the formula, we can calculate the dose, total volume, and divided volume:

  • Dose: dose = Math.min(30 * 50, Math.max(8 * 50, 50)) = Math.min(1500, 400, 50) = 400 mg
  • Total Volume: totalVolume = 400 mg / 25 mg/ml = 16 ml
  • Divided Volume: dividedVolume = 16 ml / 2 = 8 ml

Result: The total dose should be 400 mg (16.00 ml), divided into 2 doses per day. Each dose will be approximately 8.00 ml.
