## Dosage Calculation Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the net dosage from your medication and patient weight.

Net Dosage = Medication Dosage * Patient Weight

Variables:

- Net Dosage is the net amount of medication administered (mg)
- Medication Dosage is the prescribed amount of medication (mg)
- Patient Weight is the weight of the patient (kg)

To calculate the net dosage, multiply the medication dosage by the patient’s weight.

## What is Dosage Calculation?

Dosage calculation refers to the process of determining the appropriate amount of medication to administer to a patient based on their weight and the prescribed dosage. This involves understanding the concentration of the medication, the volume to administer, and the time period over which the medication is given. Proper dosage calculation ensures accurate and safe medication administration.

## How to Calculate Net Dosage?

The following steps outline how to calculate the net dosage using the given formula.

- First, determine the medication dosage based on the prescription.
- Next, determine the patient’s weight.
- Use the formula from above: Net Dosage = Medication Dosage * Patient Weight.
- Finally, calculate the net dosage by plugging in the values.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
