Summary

This full color self-instructional text presents the dimensional analysis (label factor, units conversion) approach to clinical calculations. It provides a revolutionary approach to ease and safety in clinical calculations by reducing previously required multiple steps to one single, easy to solve equation. The units of measure to be calculated are identified first, and provide the basis for entry of all ratios/factors to be included in the equation/calculation.

The text begins with a refresher math section. The content proceeds to systems of drug measure, reading drug labels and hypodermic syringe calibrations, and use of dimensional analysis (DA) in calculations from oral medications to critical care intravenous medications.
