Welcome to PharmCalc.com!
PharmCalc aims to harness modern technology to provide a time-saving means of performing common pharmacy calculations thereby assisting the pharmacist in the design and validation of dosage regimes that are efficacious and minimally toxic.
The computational method allows for easy adjustment of calculation parameters, practically instantaneously, without having to go through the tedious process of re-calculating by
PharmCalc Provides an easy means of calculating Loading and Maintenance doses for routinely used drugs such as Digoxin and
Theophylline. The project is founded on well established literature with each online tool outlining the calculations and references used.
With the exponential increases in computing power we enjoy today and the advent of mobile browser technology, PharmCalc aims to utilise these advances to make the computation of pharmacy calculations more readily accessible.
I hope that you find this project useful and informative, and I hope to expand the project, time permitting.

I wish to thank all of my lecturers at Kingston University and St. Georges hospital medical school, in particular Dr. Kayyali for her Pharmacokinetics
lectures, Professor Cairns for persuading us to be thorough and methodical in our practice of clinical Pharmacy and to Dr. Singer and Roy Sinclair for their encouragement of my interest in utilising computer science to try to solve medical and chemical problems. I am also grateful to Michael E. Winter the author of an invaluable book on Clinical Pharmacokinetics.
