Math for Health Care Professionals is a comprehensive, foundational resource that is equally effective in the classroom or for self-study. It assumes no prior knowledge of mathematics or health care but merges the two topics into the capstone of a complete learning package, including a student workbook. While the fundamentals of mathematics are a foundation to this book, their application to health care is emphasized. Drug dosages, intake and output, weights and measures, temperatures, IV drip rates, and conversions are a focus, and illustrations of syringes, prescriptions, medication labels, IV bags, and I and O charts allow the reader to practice real-life health care skills requiring mathematics.
