Using Cowling’s Rule we will first determine the dose of medication for a 6 year old child. In thesecond part we will use the same rule to determine the child’s age using known dosage rates. Cowling’s rule is a formula that is used to calculate a child’s dose of medication based on an adult dose and the child’s age. This formula uses multiple variables to achieve its results just as all formulasor literal equationsdo. The following two problems will use the variables: a = child’s age, d = child’s dose, D = adult dose The Cowlings Rule Formula is I will calculate the dose of Tamiflu for a 6year old child using an adult dose of 75mgSubstitue75mg for Dand 6 for aUsing order of operations remove parenthesis Using order of operations do the multiplicationUse division to solve for the correct child's dose rounding to the nearest whole numberThe appropriate dose of Tamiflu for a 6 year old child is 22mg. Next we will show that you can find a child’s age using Cowlings Rule if you know the dose of
