About this title


This new Third Edition has been extensively revised and updated to help health care professionals quickly and accurately calculate dosages for drugs. Following a basic math review of Roman numerals, fractions, decimals, percentages, and ratios and proportions, the student learns metric, apothecary, and household measurements, conversions, and methods of calculation. A full section is devoted to calculating drug and fluid dosages for oral, injectable, and intravenous administrations. Unique coverage of calculation problems for both general patient care areas and specialty units complete the book. Features: * WHAT'S NEW: * A new full colour design provides samples of drug labels as they actually appear, helping students learn to identify and read drug labels accurately. * 25% more practice problems using fractions, decimals, percents, ratios and proportions, dimensional analysis, and more! Plus the text includes an extended Post-Math Test to assess knowledge retention. * An increased number of drug labels, tables, and figures demonstrate key concepts, including central venous line placements, intramuscular injection sites, and more. * Coverage of the 5 Rights, with accompanying checklist, guides students to safe and effective interpretation of drug labels. * A new chapter on alternative methods for drug administration. * A completely revised and updated chapter on intravenous preparations explores their clinical applications and includes various IV sites. * New sections -- with practice problems -- discuss direct intravenous injection (IV push), enteral feedings, and medication administration, (including a list of drugs with their hyperosmolality). * 16 handy tear-out cards summarize an increased number of important and frequently used formulas and abbreviations.
