There are different methods of calculating drug dosages. Different hospitals use different systems of packaging and dispensing medications. This makes it even more important for a nurse to understand how to calculate medications to administer medication safely. It is not necessary to weed through tons of material to learn a method. Calculation of dosages can be done with one simple equation and a variation of that equation.
The Ratio and Proportion method and the variation of that method is the only equation needed to calculate oral (PO). intramuscular (IM) and intravenous (IV) medications. A student that learns and understands the Ratio and Proportion method will find the task of calculation of dosage less daunting.
This new eBook was designed to focus on the math aspect of calculation of Dosage, not the medications. This book is full of samples that show you that this one equation can be used to calculate any type of dosage. Many guides give you the problem, set up the equation for you and give you the answer. But what if you have questions about how the equation evolved to a certain point. Or you work the example and did not get the same answer and spend a lot of time wondering where you went wrong. With this book, you get explanations and hints that show you exactly how to set up the equation and how to work the equation out step by step. This is a sample page from the ebook.
This book also gives an alternative method for metric conversion that may be helpful to you. Every student learns differently.
