Editorial Reviews

Nancy Fairchild
This is both the 14th edition and the 25th anniversaryof the publication of this book. It includes all drugs that arecurrently approved for intravenous use, with the exception of opaquedyes used in radiology, some general anesthetics used only in theoperating room, and a few rarely used drugs. Fifteen new FDA-approveddrugs are included in this edition, along with updates in such areas asdosages, precautions, lab interactions, indications, and antidotes. Each drug entry includes the following information: usual dose, doseadjustments (situations that require increasing or decreasing a dose),dilution, storage, compatibility, rate of administration, actions,indications and uses, contraindications, precautions, drug/labinteractions, side effects, and antidotes. This reference is intendedto provide the instruction needed to administer IV medications in aquick, accurate, and professional manner. It is designed for allhealth professionals and students who have the responsibility ofadministering IV medications. The medications are alphabetized andcross-referenced by generic and trade names as well as bypharmacological action. There are helpful charts regarding dilutionand/or rate of administration and a updated diluent compatibilitychart. Special sections include important IV therapy facts,alternative choices for infrequently used drugs, and information forpatients receiving immunosuppressive agents. The spiral binding allowsthe book to remain while preparing a medication. This is a current,accurate, and complete reference of intravenous drugs. Medications canbe located quickly and the information is presented in a clear,concise, and very readable manner. Patient education informationisprovided and there is emphasis on the most important side effects andinteractions. The appendixes are helpful as is the solutioncompatibility chart located on the back cover.
From The Critics
Reviewer: Susan K. Chase, EdD, RN, CS (Boston College School of Nursing)
Description:The 13th edition of this popular book provides a reference for healthcare providers who administer intravenous medications in any setting from operating room and intensive care to home care situations. It is organized alphabetically by generic drug name.
Purpose:The purpose is to provide easily accessible information for specific medications to care providers. Each medication is described by drug group, usual adult and pediatric dose, dose adjustment situations, such as elderly or renal failure patients, dilution directions, compatiblities and incompatibilities, safe rates of administration, actions, indications, contraindications, precautions, drug and lab result interactions, and antidotes. The information is designed to be useful as a quick reference or to provide a more comprehensive source. The index allows the user to find a drug by generic, trade, or group name without having to look in several places. The book meets its objective of providing easily accessible, essential information.
Audience:Intended audiences include practicing nurses in any setting where intravenous medications are administered, prescribing physicians, nursing and medical students, and residents. The combination of authorship by nurse and pharmacist provides a broad perspective on drug usage.
Features:References for the description of individual drugs are not included, but a general publication list is offered. Appendixes cover handling cytotoxic agents, pregnancy categories, and dilution charts.
Assessment:The looseleaf format allows thebook to lie flat, a useful feature in the clinical area. The new edition includes 16 new drugs, with additional indications for some drugs. A computer version is being prepared.
