  1. Aug 15, 2010 #1
    Hi, just a few questions regarding to the aspirin (salicylate) nomogram.

    heres the nomogram i've been given:

    [PLAIN]http://img842.imageshack.us/img842/1809/nomogram.jpg [Broken]

    1.Why is there a 6hr gap at the beginning of the aspirin (salicylate) nomogram?

    Is this so we can get an accurate understanding of aspirins effect?


    2.Given the data in the nomogram, what would you suggest to be a reasonable therapeutic index for children, and above what level would you suggest would induce toxicity?

    I have no idea!

    Any help would be nice please, thanks :D
