Summary

The pediatric population is a dynamic group, with major changes in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics taking place throughout infancy and childhood. Because of these changes, the need for the evaluation and establishment of medication dosing regimens in children of different ages is great.

Updates to this Edition include 17 new drug monographs, updates to hundreds of existing monographs, two new monograph fields, breast-feeding considerations, product availability, multiple appendix updates including antithrombotic therapy in neonates and children. The book also covers immunization guidelines, oral medications that should not be crushed or altered, pediatric HIV, serotonin syndrome, 855 drug monographs, up to 39 fields of information per monograph, usual dosage by age group (Neonatal, Pediatric, Adult), over 100 extemporaneous preparation recipes, dictionary-like headings at the top of each page, FDA 'Tall Man' lettering to help distinguish drugs with look-a-like names, therapeutic category and key word index.
