Does anyone have any hints on how to make converting measurements easier (ie; 140mEq/L x 100 ml/min = 20,160mEq/day, etc...), other than going back to 3rd grade?

Thanks

TI 86 and above calculators have a great conversion chart:
You can't go wrong with that if you forget how to do your conversions.

140 mEq/L x 100 ml/ min
= 140 mEq/L x 0.1L/min < -- 100 ml/min x 1L/1000 ml = 0.1 L/min
= 14 mEq/min

1 day = 24 hrs
1 hr = 60 min

1 day = 24 x 60 = 1440 min

= 14mEq/min x 1440 min/day
= 207 360 mEq/day

I hope that make sense...
