dosage 与 dose

医学术语 dosage 与 dose 有密切的关系,但两者表达不同的意思。以下,我将介绍这两个单词各自的定义并举例说明。

dose:依据药物用法处方的药量。

  1. Each packet contains one dose.

dosage:依据药物用法、给药频率及疗程处方的药量。

  1. The dosage was increased in size, frequency and duration.

以下例句将进一步说明这两个名词的正确用法。

  1. The patient has two more doses remaining in the prescribed dosage.
  2. The failure to complete the full dosage of an antibiotic can in some cases contribute to the target bacteria becoming resistant to that antibiotic.
