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.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Karen S Yehle, PhD, MS, RN (Purdue University School of Nursing)
Description: This book provides a concise review of 68 cardiovascular conditions in one section and information about the drugs used to treat them in another section.
Purpose: It can be inferred that the purpose is to provide readers with information about cardiovascular problems, including incidence, diagnosis, treatment, signs and symptoms, and complications.
Audience: This is a useful reference for all nurses who care for patients with cardiovascular conditions, and is especially helpful to nurses who are new to cardiovascular care.
Features: Cardiovascular disorders are grouped alphabetically in sections. A number of tables and algorithms are provided, as are simple drawings. Information is presented in an easy-to-understand format, a plus for novices. The drug section is a convenient resource. The appendixes are valuable, providing common combination drugs, a list of drugs by therapeutic class, and a list of suggested references for further reading. The index is thorough. Adding a preface or introduction to the book would be helpful for readers.
Assessment: This book is both easy to read and use. There are many pocket-sized and quick reference guides, but this one is unique in the way the drug section corresponds specifically to the conditions. It is well written and includes information that cardiovascular nurses can readily use as they care for patients with these conditions.
