The following is a list of nursing calculators. Each
calculator, along with examples and formulas, provides a
unique way to review nursing math. These calculators are featured on Nurseweek.com
and soon to be part of Nursingbar.com.
Directions
Each link below, describing the calculator, will take you to
that calculator's web page. To work these calculators, everything above
the "solve" button is for you to fill in. The answer(s) will be
shown below the "solve" button. Friendly alerts will appear if
you leave a box blank or type in something wrong. You may see examples of the calculator on those
pages (examples shown are just for display).
This calculator does not
work. It is just for display. 
These radio buttons let you choose between options.
Click and point with your mouse to select or change an option. The dot
indicates which option is selected. 

All the boxes above the "solve"
button are for you to fill in. These boxes require numbers or decimal
points (periods) only. 
The "solve" button
takes whatever information is entered and calculates the result. 
All boxes below the
"solve" button are where the results are displayed.
Don't put anything here. 



The "reset" button clears all
information entered. The radio buttons will go back to their default
option. 
Dosage calculators
 PO dosage calculator  solids
i.e. tablets, caplets, capsules, lozenges
 PO dosage calculator  liquids
calculates liquid medications such as acetaminophen
elixir
 IV dosage calculator
calculates IV medications such as furosemide and
digoxin
Calculate IV rates
 IV rate (gtt/min)
calculates IV rates without using an IV
pump
 IV rate (mL/hr) calculates
IV rates when given a time limit when IV must be infused
 mcg/min as mL/hr
calculates IV medication rates such as
norepinephrine and nitroglycerine
 mcg/kg/min as mL/hr
calculates IV medication rates such as
nitroprusside and dopamine
Calculate infusion time
 IV time (hrs)
given
an IV rate, calculates the duration of an IV
Calculate dosage given or
infusing
There are times when the only way to figure out how much medication is being
infused is by looking at the information on the IV bag and the rate of the
infusion.
 mL/hr as dose/hr
calculates the dose of medications infusing
such as heparin
 mL/hr as mcg/min
calculates the dose of medications infusing
such as nitroglycerine and norepinephrine
 mL/hr as mcg/kg/min calculates
the dose of medications infusing such as dobutamine and nitroprusside
Clinical Calculators
 pediatric dose calculator
converts an adult dosage into a pediatric using
BSA
 O2 remaining in ecylinder
calculates how much O2 is left according to
rate infusing
 bsa calculator
calculates
the BSA according to height and weight
 drug
absorption (Pka)
determines how well a
medication will be absorbed into the body
 O.R. fluid requirements
calculates IV rate
according to the type of surgery
 N.P.O. fluid replacement
calculates fluid replacement for time NPO
 allowable blood loss
calculates how much blood can be lost without
needing a transfusion
 estimated blood volume
estimates how much blood is in a person's body
 Ideal Body Weight (IBW)
compares an individuals weight against a statistical
norm
 Adjusted Body Weight (ABW)
calculates the ABW in obese persons for more
accurate drug dosing
 ABG
interpreter interprets a respiratory or
metabolic cause for pH disorders.
Conversion Calculators
 °F,°C conversions

 pounds to
kilograms converts
pound and kilogram weights
 inches to
centimeters converts
inch and centimeter lengths
 foot, inch to centimeters
converts foot, inch and centimeter lengths (i.e 5'3" = 160 cm)
 nonmetric
to metric converts gr, tsp, tbs, oz, cup, min,
dr to metric
 metric units converts between metric weights and volumes
 % solutions to mg/mL
converts % solution into mg/mL concentration
 epinephrine solutions to mg/mL
chart that converts a ratio into a mg/mL
concentration
Drug Calculators
 Propofol bolus/infusion
calculates how many mL to push for intubation
or rates for sedation and maintenance
 Muscle relaxants
calculates how many mL to push for intubation
