It’s easy to convert pounds to kilograms

Kilograms (kg) are now, and have been, the unit of measurement used in the US for determining our weight for oral and infusion medication dosages.

The formula to convert pounds to kilograms is simple; multiply your weight in pounds by .453 (i.e. 150lb X .453 = 68kg Note: there may be small rounding errors as the true number to multiple by extends eight decimal places being .45359237)
