Biomedical Calculations: Principles and Practice is anaccessible, student-friendly introduction to calculating, applyingformulae and solving quantitative problems within these subjects.This book targets a problem area for many students and aims to givethem the confidence which they are so often lacking whenundertaking scientific calculations. It takes a unique approach tothe subject and uses unit analysis as a central theme throughoutthe book to enhance student understanding. 

Clearly structured throughout, little basic knowledge ofmathematics is assumed, but even the most numerate readers will beinterested in the sometimes-novel biological detail. Numerousworked examples, supplementary questions and practice problems areprovided and although the book is written to be read in sequence,it will also be a useful reference. 

The central theme of the book focuses on the value of unitanalysis in solving quantitative problems, with explanations on howto avoid errors in calculations and in checking, understanding andderiving formulae and equations.   As a background to this,there is extensive treatment of physical units, both individually(e.g. kg, m, mmol) and in combination (e.g. m s¯², mmolL¯¹), and also of other aspects of quantitativethinking.  A variety of topics (mostly from physiology,pharmacology and biochemistry) are used to demonstrate thesecalculations in practice. 

Key features: 

An accessible, student-friendly introduction for all thosehesitant in calculating, applying formulae and solving quantitativeproblems An innovative approach to scientific calculations and how towork with unfamiliar formulae for the biomedical and lifesciencesIncludes modern, up to date definition of pH eliminating theneed for logarithms and a discussion of the importance of pHClear introduction on how to use the book, guidance on unitsand unit conversion, and an appendix on basic mathematics andnotation Use of unit analysis as a central theme Includes numerous worked examples and supplementary questionsthroughout the text to enhance student understanding
