Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nancy Fairchild, RN, MS, CAES (Boston College School of Nursing)
Description: This third edition of a manual on dose calculations provides a step-by-step guide for computing drug dosages. Basic math skills are reviewed and drug measurement systems, drug orders, and medication records are discussed. The calculation of oral, topical, rectal, and parenteral drugs are thoroughly covered as are special dose calculations for the pediatric, obstetric, and critical care patient. There are many practice problems included in the text.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the information needed to accurately calculate dosages and prepare medications exactly as ordered.
Audience: It is designed for students of nursing and as a resource manual for professional nurses when they encounter an unfamiliar calculation.
Features: This third edition offers a more extensive math review and new chapters on performing critical care and pediatric calculations, computerized medication records, and drug administration equipment. It also includes current drug labels, "golden rules" that highlight important information, and six helpful appendixes.
Assessment: The manual is up-to-date, patient-centered, and easy to use, progressing from the simple to the complex. A pretest, the many practice problems, and a comprehensive test at the end assist the learner in reinforcing knowledge and in identifying areas needing further practice. This is an excellent manual for student nurses to learn how to calculate dosages and a valuable resource for the practicing nurse.
