## How do you convert MEQ L to mg/l calcium?

Calcium has a molecular weight of 40.08 grams/mole Calcium has a valence of +2 The equivalent weight = (40.08grams/mole)/(2 equivalents/mole) = 20.04 grams/eq To convert to mg/meq you simply multiply g/eq by 1000 mg/g and divide by 1000 meq/eq, thus g/eq = mg/meq If your sample contains 30 mg Ca/L, what is the …

## How do you convert mmol to mg in glucometer?

In the United States, blood glucose test results are reported as mg/dL. Medical journals and other countries use millimoles per liter (mmol/L). If your glucometer uses the mmol/L measure, convert to mg/dL by multiplying mmol/L by 18. Example: 10 mmol/L x 18 = 180 mg/dL.

mg/dl 40 54
mmol/L 6.7 7.4
mg/dl 140 154
mmol/L 7.8 8.5
mg/dl 160 174

## How many mg of calcium are in a mmol?

Children < 10 d 7.6-10.4 mg/dL 1.90-2.60 mmol/L
Children 11 d-2 yr 9.0-11.0 mg/dL 2.25-2.75 mmol/L
Children 3-12 yr 8.8-10.8 mg/dL 2.20-2.70 mmol/L
Children 13-18 yr 8.4-10.2 mg/dL 2.10-2.55 mmol/L

## How do you calculate Milliequivalent calcium?

When an atom has a valence of two or more (e.g. Mg+2, Ca+2, Al+3) a mEq of that ion is equal to the atomic weight of the atom in milligrams divided by the atom’s valence. For example, one mEq of calcium (Ca+2) with an atomic weight of 40 weight 20 mg.

## How do you convert mmol to mg?

Whats the difference between mmol/L and mg/dL?

1. Formula to calculate mmol/l from mg/dl: mmol/l = mg/dl / 18.
2. Formula to calculate mg/dl from mmol/l: mg/dl = 18 × mmol/l.

## Is mEq L same as mmol L?

A mmol is one-thousandth of a mole. Similarly, a mEq is one-thousandth of an equivalent. Without delving into the chemistry definitions, mEq/L is often used for plasma electrolyte concentrations. mEq is related to the number (mmol) and electrical charge of ions in solution.
