Paramedic Med-Math Made Easy provides step-by-step instructions for the most common, every day formulas you'll use in the field. In its easy to understand format, you'll quickly grasp how to convert pounds to kilograms, teaspoons to milliliters, or grams to milligrams. With the equivalents and formulas laid out, Paramedic Med-Math Made Easy then provides examples showing how formulas are used, along with guidelines to help you understand each calculation.

Each scenario illustrates how the application or conversion should be set up, so you can clearly see and understand how the calculation works and where pitfalls may occur. Admittedly, you can choose among several math formula methods to calculate proper doses to administer.
