Demonstrating how mathematics is used in real-world practice, MATH FOR HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS, 2E 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 into the capstone of a complete learning package -- including a student workbook and the MindTap® digital learning solution. The book emphasizes the fundamentals of mathematics as well as their application to health care. Through drug dosages, intake and output, weights and measures, temperatures, IV drip rates, conversions, illustrations of syringes, prescriptions, medication labels, IV bags, and I and O charts, readers practice real-life health care skills requiring mathematics. The Second Edition includes new chapters on pre-algebra and geometry as well as statistics. It also offers expanded coverage of body mass index, 24-hour time, calculating the volume of containers of various shapes, and more.
