• A-a Gradient - The Alveolar-arterial gradient (A-a gradient), is a measure of the difference between the alveolar concentration of oxygen and the arterial concentration of oxygen. It is used in diagnosing the source of hypoxemia
• Anesthesia Drug Calc - Calculates recommended dosage (based on weight) for many drugs commonly used in anesthesia.
• Anion Gap - used to differentiate the causes of metabolic acidosis
• Blood Gas Analysis - Analyze blood gas measurements to determine acidosis/alkalosis and metabolic vs. respiratory causes
• Bicarbonate Dosing - Recommended bicarbonate dosing to counteract acidosis
• Body Surface Area - Given a body weight, determine the surface area. Used to determine drug dosing
• Combining Fluids - There are a number of drugs in a clinical setting that come as a percent solution. Some examples include 50% dextrose, 25% mannitol, and 2% lidocaine. This calculator assists in manipulating these fluids to alternate percentages.
• Corrected Calcium - Corrects Calcium values for hypoalbuminemic patients
• CRI - Constant Rate of Infusion calculator. Given a weight, volume, rate of fluid flow and desired rate of drug infusion, determines how much of the drug to add to the running fluid.

• Maintenance Fluids - determines how much fluid an animal needs on a daily basis
• Osmolality - Measures the concentration of substances such as sodium, potassium, urea, and glucose in blood.
• Percentage Solutions - When you need to deliver a certain quantity of a drug that is suspended in solution you can use this calculator to determine how much volume of the solution you should give.
• Temperature Conversion - converts F - C and C - F
• Transfusion - Given a current and desired PCV, determine the necessary volume of donor blood product
• Weight Conversion - converts between kg / g / lbs / oz
