From The CriticsReviewer: Charles L Sperling, BSN (Synergy Healthcare)
Description: This well laid out book follows the INS guidelines for infusion therapy, providing adequate documentation to support the current INS standards. The previous edition was published in 1994.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive review of infusion therapy. This is a worthy objective and the book meets the author's goals.
Audience: It is intended for the infusion therapy practitioner. The author is a credible authority in the subject matter.
Features: The book does a quality job outlining infusion therapy complications. Greater detail should have been paid to outlining the most critical safety issues related to infusion therapy. One must read the book comprehensively to obtain this information.
Assessment: This book provides much greater detail for the experienced infusion nurse than the original edition. I do wish it had provided a quick reference section for those nurses who would not normally read a book on the subject, but do provide IV therapy on a regular basis. Unfortunately, this applies to the majority of the nurses providing infusion therapy, especially in the outpatient and home care setting.
