    Also see the example below;

    Its 24mL total between the 3 vials administered. You add up the mL as specified by each NDC

    NDC# 00003-3774-12 100mg/10ML. This is a 10mL vial so 2 vials would be 20mL.
    There is a total of 100mg in a vial

    NDC# 00003-3772-11 40mg/4ml. This is a 4mL vial so 1 vial would be 4mL. 
    There is a total of 40 mg in a vial 
    You don't need to calculate anything unless a partial vial is used.

    Feel free to ask for any further query. Thank you.
