The English language needed to discuss medications and to calculate variations in dosage. Nurses frequently use Mathematics during their working day and need to be able to manage calculations safely and accurately.

'English for Medical Purposes: Medication Calculation for Nurses' presents the language nurses use when calculating the dosage of medication and IV fluids. Nurses often use mathematical language in their daily practice. Vital Signs including blood pressure and temperature and fluid balance assessment  require the use of whole numbers, decimals and fractions.
Accuracy in medication calculation is essential for patient safety so nurses are assessed on a regular basis to ensure their maths skills remain current.
An understanding of the terms used in medication administration including IV Therapy as well as vocabulary practice is also presented in the book
