Math for Healthcare Professionals: Dosage Calculations and Fundamentals of Medication Administration builds upon a student's existing basic math skills and teaches them the more complex solving calculations that are representative of today's healthcare practice. The foundation for learning to calculate dosages and intravenous administration will be based on the ratio and proportion model, which also adapts to the dimensional Analysis method--an increasingly popular method as dosage calculations are universalized. Math for Healthcare Professionals contains diagnostic test questions at the beginning of each chapter, sample questions throughout each chapter, and diagnostic test questions at the end of the each chapter to analyze proficiency of that subject matter.
