The drug dosage calculator provides specific dose information based upon patient statistics provided in the fields above and the indications and routes selected for the drug.
  • IMPORTANT: This calculator is designed to be a quick reference, and many important considerations and contraindications are not listed here. As with all clinical decision support tools, ultimately use clinical judgement when selecting the dose to be administered for a specific patient.
  • If the dose is weight-based and weight is provided, the mass and volume of drug will also be calculated
    • Doses are calculated using total body weight unless otherwise specified
    • For volume, verify the correct preparation of the drug is selected
  • If the drug has different dosing based upon age (e.g. pediatric, elderly) and age is provided, an adjusted dose will be provided if the data is available
  • Some doses may have important additional information which will be shown as a link below the dose
