Study Notes

Pharmaceutical Calculations

• The area of study that applies basic mathematical principles to the preparation and safe use of pharmaceuticals is Pharmaceutical Calculations.
• Pharmaceutical calculations enable accurate and safe preparation of medications, and accurate dispensing of prescribed quantities in pharmacies.

International System of Units (SI) in Pharmacy Practice

• The International System of Units (SI) relates to the standardization of units of measurement in pharmacy practice.
• The primary purpose of SI in pharmacy practice is to ensure accuracy and consistency in measurements.

Calculated Quantities of Ingredients

• The main purpose of carefully calculated, measured, verified, and labelled quantities of ingredients is to ensure the safety and efficacy of pharmaceuticals.
• Carefully calculated, measured, and labelled quantities of ingredients are essential in pharmaceuticals to prevent errors, ensure accuracy, and maintain quality.

Pharmaceutical Calculation Focus

• The main focus of pharmaceutical calculation in pharmacy practice is to ensure accurate and safe preparation and dispensing of medications.

Percentage and Ratio Strength Calculations

• Percentage and ratio strength calculations primarily relate to the concentration of active ingredients in pharmaceuticals.
• These calculations are used to determine the amount of active ingredient in a medication.

Reducing and Enlarging Formula Calculations

• Reducing and enlarging formula calculations primarily involve adjusting the quantities of ingredients in a pharmaceutical formula to achieve the desired strength or quantity.
