dose calculations

dose calculations

formulas for adjusting drug dosages for children, elderly adults, or other patients who may lack mechanisms for metabolizing and excreting average adult levels of medications. Infants, for example, have skin that is thin and permeable, a stomach that lacks gastric acid, body temperature that is poorly regulated, and immature liver and kidney function. See also pediatric dosage.
