The answer is supposed to be 0.25ml. If there are 2mg in 1ml, if you give 0.5ml you are giving the patient 1mg of atropine rather than the correct dosage of 0.5mg...

The anwer is 0.25ml
If you have 2mg in 1ml, you are ordered to give 0.5 mg, and you give 1mg then you would give 0.5 mls. Half of that would be 0.5mg would be 0.25ml.

If your packaged dose is 2mg in 1ml, 0.5ml would be 1mg of medicine, the answer is 0.25ml.
