Thank you! Percentages have always been my stumbling point in medical math - more tutorials on them are always welcome =)

Any tips/future videos on calculating drug CRIs? I always get to a certain point and then forget what to do, everyone has a different way of doing it and I have yet to find a way that suites me that I can remember! Where I work we do a lot of Dexdomitor CRI, Lidocaine CRI, Methadone/Fentanyl CRI, etc. I'm newer to the team so they don't expect me to do these calculations right away, but I'd like to be able to!

I would recommend adding rationale to why the decimal place is moved one place to the right - just in case the rule is forgotten. Very good examples
