Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Follow the leader. Math for Meds has helped nearly one million nurses and other health care professionals become safe practitioners of dosage calculations. This classic resource continues to blaze the trail into a ninth edition, with its ratio and proportion method and building-block organization. Hundreds of full-color images of drug labels, syringes, and equipment complement the range of calculation competencies - from reading medication labels to calculating flow rates for heparin infusion. The straightforward language has also been retained, as the ninth edition preserves the tradition of making the complex understandable.

Synopsis:

Increase your confidence and aptitude in dosage calculations with the best-selling ratio and proportion book on the market! Learn from the master, Anna Curren, who has successfully taught dosage calculations to thousands of students. This new edition of Math for Meds includes full-color drug labels and syringes throughout, which are tied to questions that test your understanding and mastery of the concepts. With the goal of helping you become a safe and effective practitioner, Math for Meds walks you through basic and advanced calculations in detail, including intravenous and pediatric calculations.

Synopsis:

This classic textbook appeals to learners at all levels with its ratio-proportion method and step-by-step building block approach. Beginning with a basic math overview and progressing through dosage calculations from simple to more complex exercises, Math for Meds allows for self-paced study. Each concept is explained and illustrated with multiple examples using actual drug labels, life-sized syringes, and practice sets. Summary self-tests are included at the end of each chapter to reinforce mastery and a new CD-ROM in the back of the book includes tutorial segments, exercises and practice test questions.
