    Being a nurse my career is riddled with math. Everyday medication dosages need to be checked and calculated correctly before giving patients medications. An error in medication calculation can result in a patient receiving to much or too little of a medication. Another way math is utilized is by measuring vital signs such as blood pressure (with the blood pressure machine seen above) and see trending data for a specific patient in the form of a graph. This ensures the treatment for example an antihypertensive medication is effective or not, which then require the patients treatment regimen to be adjusted accordingly. So math is a major part of my career and i couldn’t see myself doing anything else, so math also becomes a part of my life.
