Rational Functions in Medicine Michael A. MHF4U January 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 be injected with medication before the whole process begins, that medication when injected would have certain level of concentration in the bloodstream that is required for the process to begin safely. We will talk about how we model that concentration using rational functions. And, why it is important for the concentration 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 or biological sciences followed by medicine. Doctors have many duties and a lot of the times it may be unexpected too, they may work long and unpredictable hours, this all really depends on the needs of their patients. They may have to travel to different places to provide their services if need be. 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 to determine the concentration level in the bloodstream after someone was injected with medication, specifically before a surgery. Calculations: We’ll be using an example of the rational function C ( t ) = 4 t t + 2 . This equation is just an example of our scenario of the concentration in the bloodstream. In this
