The information nurses need for safe, effective drug administration in any setting.
With over 400 updates, the new 2018 edition of the Pearson Nurse's Drug Guide provides safe, effective, current, and accurate drug information in a quickly accessible format. Comprehensive and complete, it lists all drugs alphabetically by generic names for quick reference, with an index listing both generic and trade names. It presents important clinical information for hundreds of drugs, with adverse reactions, interactions, side effects, and impacts on lab results.
This new edition includes 14 monographs for new drugs recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and over 400 updates to drug indications, available dosage forms, adverse effects, dosages, and more. IV administration information has been updated regarding adults as well as children. There are subheadings for IV preparation and administration of IV medications for children (when available), which add to the ease of locating appropriate information by age.
