Book Description :

Are you a pharmacy technician, or pharmacy technician student, who wants to learn a few simple methods of solving pharmacy calculations without a bunch of formulas? Would you like to raise your hand in Pharmacy Calculations Class, after the instructor explains a complicated formula, and ask to approach the white board to show the class a much simpler method? Do you want to go out on your externship and teach practicing pharmacy technicians how to preform pharmacy calculations? Do you want to walk into your Pharmacy Calculations Class on the first day knowing that you can ace all the tests before the course begins? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this book is for you. The book’s first chapter covers the following auxiliary subjects, which are important to a well-rounded knowledge of pharmacy calculations. · Rounding Numbers · Roman Numerals · The Metric System · Scientific Notation · Significant Figures · Percent Error · The Apothecary/Avoirdupois/Household Systems The second chapter will teach you that all the following types of calculations can be performed with one simple method. If you can convert 5 g to mg using this method, you can solve the most complicated IV flow rate problem. · Unit Conversions · Dosage Calculations · IV Flow Rate Calculations · Percent Calculations · Percent Strength Calculations · Ratio Strength Calculations · Quantity to Dispense Calculations · Milliequivalent Calculations The third chapter covers concentrations and dilutions. While there is not one method of solving all these problems, you will quickly see that they all have common components. Topics covered are: · Preparing a Solution Using Two Different Strength Solutions · Preparing a Solution from a Stock Solution and a Diluent · Calculating the Percent Strength of a Mixture · Powder Volume Calculations · Serial Dilution The book includes plenty of exercises to hone your skills along with a self-assessment exercise. Finally, the book ends with a couple of “Pharmacy Calculation Puzzles”. These puzzles are for those students who want to say to themselves, “If I can solve these, I can solve any possible problem I will encounter.”

Book Description :

This text contains three units covering maths, concentration and dosage calculations.Unit one covers math skills which are essential in order to understand the mathematical basis for performing the most demanding calculations. The most complicated pharmaceutical calculations you are likely to come across require understanding fractions, equivalent fractions the addition and subtraction of fractions in addition to applying algebra in order to find unknown in a simple algebraic relationship.Unit two describes the basic units of the metric system. The base units of the metric system are described in addition to multiples and fractions of these units. A few units of measure other than the metric system units of measure are still used, they are described here and their metric equivalents are explained.Methods used to express medicine concentrations are described here in addition to ratio strength, parts and units.This unit also describes how to select the most appropriate weighing or measuring equipment and explains how to determine the errors involved.Unit three looks at various types of dosage forms, abbreviations used in writing prescriptions such as abbreviations to indicate time and frequency of medicine administration in addition to abbreviations which indicate site of administration of a medicine. The calculations of standard solid dosages is looked at, followed by calculation of liquid dosages, patient specific and non patient specific dosage forms and finally the calculations relevant to intravenous infusion which are mainly carried out in primary care environment. Calculation of equivalent therapeutic doses and calculations required in reconstitution of powdered formulations.
