Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Shari J. Lynn, RN, MSN (Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing)
Description: This book is to be used as a pharmacology pocket reference where information can easily be recorded for one patient and then erased to be used again for another patient. The index tabs make it easy to instantly find information.
Purpose: The purpose is to allow nurses to have important information at their fingertips that is not always easy to memorize. The objectives are worthy and met by this book.
Audience: It is basically written for nurses who work with IV infusion in all areas of nursing. The author is a credible authority.
Features: The book includes basic facts and physiology as well as presentations of access devices and administration of blood products, medications and nutrition. Each section is thoroughly discussed and the "write on/wipe off" feature is quite unique.
Assessment: This is a quality book that can be useful to nurses as they record information in the book and then use it to make critical decisions regarding patient plans of care.
