Home phototherapy treatments are often given in minutes and seconds with the next treatment being a percentage increase over the last. If your last treatment was 1 minute and 48 seconds, what would a 15% increase be? Not so easy to figure out unless you use Daavlin’s new Phototherapy Calculator app.
To use the app to calculate your new time, enter in your last treatment and the % increase, then press Calculate. The app gives you the answer in a split second. You can also calculate dose increases in milliJoules and Joules for treatments using UVA, UVA1, UVB, Blue and Red Light.
And by the way, if your last treatment was 1 minute and 45 seconds and you need a 15% increase, your new treatment will be 2 minutes and 4 seconds.
Daavlin’s Phototherapy Calculator is free to download at both the Apple I-Tune store and the Android market.
