For this week’s discussion, we are asked to find the proper dosage for particular medications for a child utilizing the Cowling’s Rule. Cowling’s Rule is a mathematical procedure which determines the child’s dosage from his/her age through the conversion of the adult dosage. For this rule, the formula, sometimes known as literal equation, consists of two or more variables. The formula for this rule has three variables. The variables are as follows:d: child’s dosageThe formula for this rules is d= D(a+ 1)D: adult dosage24a: child’s ageWe are assigned random dosages in relation to the first letter of our last name. Since my last name begins with the letter W, my assigned medication is Tamiflu. The adult dosage is 75mg with the child being at the age of 5-years-old. All math work will be located to the left side and illustration of steps taken will be located on the right side. d = D (a + 1)Cowling’s Formula24d = 75 (5 +1)I substituted75 for Dand 5 for a.
