Rational Functions in MedicineMichael A.MHF4UJanuary 31, 2019
Abstract:The purpose of this report is to find out how rational functions are applied in Medicine. In this report, we will discuss how for example,when someone is getting a surgery and they have to beinjected with medication before the whole process begins, that medication when injectedwould have certain level of concentration in the bloodstream that is requiredfor the process to begin safely. We will talk about how we model thatconcentration using rational functions. And, why it is important for theconcentration to be right, which rational functions help us determine.Introduction:The required education to become a doctor is a Bachelor’s degree which must be followed by a degree in either M.D. (Doctor of Medicine) or a D.O.(Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine). The fields of study required are pre-med orbiological sciences followed by medicine. Doctors have many duties and a lot of the times it may be unexpected too, they may work long andunpredictable hours, this all really depends on the needs of their patients.They may have to travel to different places to provide their services if needbe. The average salary of a doctor in Canada, specifically Ontario is about $339,000(global news). In this situation as stated earlier, rational functions are used todetermine the concentration level in the bloodstream after someone wasinjected with medication, specifically before a surgery.Calculations:We’ll be using an example of the rational functionC(t) =4tt +2. Thisequation is just an example of our scenario of the concentration in thebloodstream. In this
