hey guys Michael anar is here with simple nursing calm today we're going to be talking about your med calculation exam I'm going to make it really simple for you guys to remember how to calculate your dose over the doctor's orders and also your IV drips here so let's do it so really really simply we know that doctor's orders here go over your basically what you had right times your quantity of what you're going to give so the doctor writes whatever he wants you to give but what you have is is what you have and you're in your medication part times your quantity equals the Constitution so I didn't give you a really simple way to remember this and I just put D over H I remember this by saying drinks are on the house so drinks are on the house basically like they're free times your quantity will equal what you're going to give so the doctor says I want you to give 25 milligrams of lopressor and you have 50 milligrams of lopressor then you're going to cut it in half right so you say doctor's orders D over H times the quantity so doctor's orders is 25 milligrams we have 50 milligrams times your one tab and it would come out to basically half a tap on your score tab now this is the simplest way that I remember it so drinks are on the house times your quantity so hopefully that helps guys we'll see you at symbol nursing comm where we have more IV calculations for you really really both trip rates
