Overview


Disease & Drug Consult is a unique new series: a body system's disease monographs plus monographs of the drugs used to treat them in a single handbook. In Cardiovascular Disorders, for example, the nurse can read a full description of heart failure, then turn to the drug monographs for a full discussion of each of the drugs used to treat that disease. Each book in the series is based on a specific body system and has two sections. Part 1 presents diseases alphabetically, with a description, causes & incidence, signs & symptoms, complications, diagnosis, treatment including drugs used to treat the disease, and the reason for using each drug, and special considerations. Part 2 offers--also in alphabetical order--complete drug monographs for each drug mentioned in the disease section.
