Refinements in the Dimensional Analysis Method of Dose Calculation Problem-Solving

Arnold, Gary J. MD, FACS

Collapse Box

Abstract

Although the dimensional analysis method for solving dose calculation problems is gaining acceptance with nurse educators, many inconsistencies in teaching methodologies remain that can be confusing to both students and practicing nurses. The author presents refinements to the dimensional analysis method which can improve speed and accuracy in dose calculations and will be universally applicable to all types of clinical dosage problems.
