Math for Health Care Professionals 2nd Edition Announced

Cengage Learning recently announced that the second edition of Math for Health Care Professionals, 2nd edition, will be released in January 2016. The first edition of this textbook was released in 2005 and has set the s

tandard for teaching math for students in health care fields. The new edition utilizes a proven, objective-by-objective approach while integrating new chapters on pre-algebra and geometry, medical research, and statistics.

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.
