This textbook teaches the basic principles of mathematics and applies these principles to cases that paramedics face on the job. Chapters cover math rules and principles; fractions, decimals, and percentages; ratios, proportions, and conversion factors; and rate-dependent and weight-based calculations. Practice problems are scattered throughout the chapters; students practice as they go. Every chapter highlights how paramedics can make use of the math knowledge that they already have in order to solve more complicated problems. Chapters begin with the simple and obvious, and progress to the level used in the field.It is recommended that anyone born after 1956 who did not receive live measles vaccine after age 1 year and has no documented history of measles ...
