MED-104 - Pharmacology/Dosage & Calculations

1 credits

This course will introduce the student to pharmaceutical calculations and provide basic information on the apothecary and metric systems, and conversions from one system to another, based on practical drug problems encountered in clinical practice, since it is the responsibility of those administering drugs to precisely and efficiently carry out medical orders. A review of fractions, decimals, percent's, ratios, and roman numerals will be included, emphasizing examples used in the most common medication orders. Learning will be reinforced by computer-assisted problem solving and review questions that directly relate to concepts taught in MED-103 - Introduction to Pharmacology . This is a seven-week course.
