Over the course of the first two weeks of May, I have published a number of videos on my Podcast and social media platforms on the topic of displacement values. While the videos have no audio commentary, they are still useful if you want to get to grips with the concept; which, I have found, tends to confuse a lot of pharmacy graduates. Nurses, doctors and pharmacy technicians should also find them useful.
I’m working on a full lecture that incorporates both these videos and additional material for those who want a more comprehensive treatment of the subject. Let me know what you would like to see in the lecture and look out for it in the next few weeks.
In the meantime, I’ve put together the videos from the past two weeks in one convenient location below. Enjoy
In this post we present the last two examples from our displacement value series. We’ll be moving on to other calculation questions in a few days. In the meantime, let us know how you’ve found the displacement value series.
In this episode we see how a displacement value less than one does not change the fundamental calculations involving displacement values. However, it does mean that the suppositories weigh less than their nominal weight.
Understanding displacement value calculations is a challenge for a large number of pharmacy graduates, especially in relation to suppositories. This example shows how to tackle one such question. Look out for our Displacement Values Masterclass for a more comprehensive tutorial.
