Day 60/67: Five Month GED, Constant Rate of Change Med. Reactions, and Health Care Science for Adults

We use health care related words every day, but do we see how those words are related to the mathematics and to the concepts that we must remember, or relearn, from our science basics?  Noting the relationships and patterns between various interacting concepts are important for every Adult in a republic, where we each have a responsibility to understand public health care issues, and to help protect one another.

Today’s reading starts looking at chemical reactions, and the concept of half-life of a reaction, which is a linear relationship to the starting point of the reaction:

“The half-life of a reaction, t1/2, is the amount of time needed for a reactant concentration to decrease by half compared to its initial concentration. Its application is used in chemistry and medicine to predict the concentration of a substance over time. The concepts of half life plays a key role in the administration of drugs into the target, especially in the elimination phase, where half life is used to determine how quickly a drug decrease in the target after it has been absorbed in the unit of time (sec, minute, day,etc.) or elimination rate constant ke (minute-1, hour-1, day-1,etc.). It is important to note that the half-life is varied between different type of reactions. The following section will go over different type of reaction, as well as how its half-life reaction are derived. …”
