About The Author

Michalakis Savva

Savva’s Pharmaceutical Calculations: A Conceptual Approach (PDF), is an ebook that combines conceptual and procedural understanding for students and will guide you to master prerequisite skills to carry out accurate compounding and dosage regimen calculations. It is a textbook that makes the connection between basic sciences and pharmacy. It describes the most important concepts in pharmaceutical sciences thoroughly, accurately, and consistently through various commentaries and activities to make you a scientific thinker and to help you succeed in college and licensure exams. The error associated with a dose measurement can only be calculated after understanding the concept of accuracy versus precision in a measurement. Similarly, a full appreciation of drug absorption and distribution to tissues can only come about after understanding the process of transmembrane passive diffusion. Early understanding of these concepts will allow reinforcement and deeper comprehension of other related concepts taught in other courses.

More weight is placed on the qualitative understanding of fundamental concepts, like tonicity vs osmotic pressure, diffusion vs osmosis, crystalloids vs colloids, osmotic diuretics vs. plasma expanders, rate of change vs. rate constants, drug accumulation vs. drug fluctuation, loading dose vs maintenance dose, body surface area (BSA) vs. body weight (BW) as methods to adjust dosages, and much more, before considering other quantitative problems. In one more significant innovation, the origin and physical significance of all final forms of critical equations is always described in detail, thus allowing recognition of an equation’s actual application and limitations. Specific strategies are explained step-by-step in more than 100 practice examples taken from compounding pharmacy, pharmaceutics, pharmacokinetics, pharmacology, and medicine.
