How to Read Syringes for Medication Measurements
Have you ever asked yourself:
- Do all of the small lines on syringes have the same value?
- How can I tell how much medication is in a syringe?
- There are so many types of syringes. Is there a simple way to read them?
If you seek answers to these questions, then this course is for you.
Don't Worry. This course is not about learning the ENTIRE subject of medication administration. Instead, this course targets one specific skill that many beginning students find challenging—reading syringes to determine the amount of medication in syringes (5 mL, 3 mL, 1 mL, U100).
