Emulsion - 乳剤 -


Kelly : Hey Sophie what are you doing?
Sophie : I’m almost done filling the daily medication request for the pediatrics’ ward.
Kelly: Medicines should be dispensed in an hour. Do you need any help?
Sophie : Oh, yes, please. Dr. Tim prescribed Cod liver oil emulsion for 2 weeks. The child has to take 2 teaspoons once daily.  What do we have in stock? 
Kelly : Let’s see. We have it in 100 mL and 150 mL bottles  in two flavors, strawberry and orange. One teaspoonful contains 5 mL.  The total volume for the whole period of drug therapy is 140 mL.
Sophie : I’ll have to dispense the 150 ml in orange flavor  because the child's report says that he likes oranges.
Kelly : Oh, this is the bubbly boy you met in the hospital park the other day, isn’t it?
Sophie : Yes. He has an infection and is suffering from rickets due to Vitamin D deficiency. 
Kelly : Cod liver oil strengthens the body’s natural resistance to infection. It has high levels of Omega-3, DHA and EPA. Not to mention higher levels of Vitamins A and D in comparison to fish oil.
Sophie : And fortunately with fruit flavors, the days of having a bitter pill to swallow are gone.
Kelly : Yes they are.
