More About This Textbook

Overview

This practical reference was developed to meet the needs of critical care and emergency nurses, physicians, and pharmacists in administering complex drugs given by IV infusion. Presented in an easy-to-use handbook format, it contains information on how to dose and administer complex and commonly used critical care drugs. Each drug is listed with information about what its most common uses are, how to prepare the drug infusion for patient administration, the most common dosages, the most common warnings and adverse reactions, compatibility with other drug infusions, and general nursing considerations. One of its most unique features is the inclusion of calculation factors. Dosing charts allow the healthcare professional to quickly determine the appropriate dose in a matter of seconds.

• Drip Rate Calculation Charts and Dosing Charts allow the user to quickly see how to mix and prepare drugs that are usually needed by patients on an immediate, urgent basis.
• Covers 44 of the most common intravenous infusion critical care drugs.
• Calculation factors for each drug are unique, simplifying an otherwise complicated process and substantially reducing the chance of medication errors.
• Includes Nursing Considerations for each drug.
• This reference is not only useful for critical care nurses, but also general medicine or general surgical nurses, hospital pharmacists, physicians, cardiologists, anesthesiologists, and emergency room physicians.
• Blank pages in the back of the book allow readers to take notes for quick reference.
