This is the fifth edition of a drug reference for nurses describing over 1500 prescription and nonprescription drugs classified into 51 categories. Drugs are alphabetically arranged by generic name with quick-reference A-Z tabs and a detailed cross-referenced index of names. The book includes more than 80 new drugs, many recently approved by the FDA. Two new anticonvulsants, two new antidepressants, and several new antiretroviral agents are described. The purpose is to provide a current, comprehensive, and convenient drug resource for nurses to assure safe and effective administration of medications. Drug information highlights the indications, action and pharmacokinetics, contraindications and precautions, side effects, interactions, route and dosage, time/action profile, and warnings for each drug. Nursing implications offered for each drug include assessment, laboratory test considerations, potential nursing diagnoses, implementation, patient/family teaching instructions, and guidelines for evaluation. This information is essential for safe, informed patient care by nurses, nurse practitioners, and nursing students in every healthcare setting. This type of reference is required wherever nurses give medications. Full color pictures clearly display 430 most commonly prescribed drugs. Special dosing considerations are given for pediatric, geriatric, and obstetric patients and patients with renal/liver or congestive heart failure. Issues of compatibility among drugs in syringes, IV tubing, and solutions are addressed. Appendixes contain useful tables for calculating infusion rates and dosages, commonly used combination drugs, administration techniques, routine immunizations, andrecent drug release updates. This drug reference is accurate, up-to-date, comprehensive, and convenient. It should be owned by all nurses and nursing students, available in all nursing libraries, and handy for quick reference in all healthcare settings where drugs are administered.
