Salt Equivalents

As an exercise, tried to figure out the equivalent amount of salt for 1 bullet of 23.4% (30mL) with the other hypertonic saline solutions.

 

23.4%:  30mL = 120 mEq Na Cl;

3%, 5%, 14.6% contain 0.51, 0.86, 2.5 mEq/mL of NaCl

3% 235 mL,

5% 140mL

14.6% 48mL

 

And came up with this table.
