    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?

    also;

    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
