Summary
This guide to dosage calculation problems uses an approach that employs the dimensional analysis--or label factor--method. Since the focus is placed on "understanding how" to problem solve rather than on memorization, students should build a better foundation for learning. The text takes the reader from simple, one-factor problems to complex, multi-factor problems. Using the UNIT PATH graphic, dimensional analysis problem-solving is presented in a step-by-step format. Two chapters are devoted to self-evaluation, allowing students to test their knowledge. A separate chapter of case studies illustrates the use of dosage calculation in "real-world". Special features include chapter objectives, examples, actual drug labels, many opportunities to practice, and a detailed answer key
