Formula:New Dose = (Current Dose × New Opioid) / Current Opioid

Introduction to Opioid Conversion Calculations

Opioid conversion calculations are used in clinical settings to determine the equivalent dose of a new opioid based on the current opioid dose. This formula allows for the conversion of opioid doses from one medication to another, taking into account differences in potency and bioavailability. The result indicates the recommended dose of the new opioid based on the patient's current opioid usage.
