VetPDA Calcs contains 21 useful calculators for Veterinary Medicine students and professionals. All calculators have been rewritten to support different iPhone sizes (including the iPhone X).
• A-a Gradient - The Alveolar-arterial gradient (A-a gradient), is a measure of the difference between the alveolar
concentration of oxygen and the arterial concentration of oxygen. It is used in diagnosing the source of hypoxemia
• Anesthesia Drug Calc - Calculates recommended dosage (based on weight) for many drugs commonly used in anesthesia.
• Anion Gap - used to differentiate the causes of metabolic acidosis
• Blood Gas Analysis - Analyze blood gas measurements to determine acidosis/alkalosis and metabolic vs. respiratory causes
• Bicarbonate Dosing - Recommended bicarbonate dosing to counteract acidosis
• Body Surface Area - Given a body weight, determine the surface area. Used to determine drug dosing
• Combining Fluids - There are a number of drugs in a clinical setting that come as a percent solution. Some examples include 50% dextrose, 25% mannitol, and 2% lidocaine. This calculator assists in manipulating these fluids to alternate percentages.
• CRI - Constant Rate of Infusion calculator. Given a weight, volume, rate of fluid flow and desired rate of drug infusion, determines how much of the drug to add to the running fluid.
• Dosing Calculator - Use this generic calculator to determine the calculated dose using the weight, dose, and concentration. NOTE: this calculator does NOT provide recommended dosing -- that's up to you :)
• Drip Rates - Assists in setting the appropriate fluid delivery rate when using a 'drip set'
• Echo Values - calculates normal cardiac dimensions in dogs
