Editorial Reviews

Nancy Fairchild
This manual is designed to serve as a tool for the nurse in the administration of intravenous medications. The medications are organized by chapter according to their classifications: antiemetic/antihistamine, antibiotics, and antineoplastic agents; blood modifiers; cardiovascular/respiratory system agents and central nervous system agents; digestive agents and enzymes; diuretics; hormones; immunologic and neuromuscular agents; nutritional products; and diagnostic agents. Each chapter begins with a list of the medications included according to their classifications and major uses. The drug's action, indication and use, pharmacokinetic characteristics, adverse side effects, contraindications and precautions, interactions, and nursing considerations are then presented. The purpose is to provide up-to-date information to the nurse in order for her to administer these medications safely, to ensure successful client outcomes, and to provide complete patient/family education. Although the manual was designed to be used primarily by the professional nurse, it would be of equal benefit to the nursing student learning how to administer intravenous medications. One of the unique features of this manual is the ^^Fast Facts^^ section. This section is highlighted for each medication and provides the nurse with the necessary information to mix, dilute, and administer the medication as well as information on the incompatibilities, major side effects, antidote, and storage of the drug. The administration of intravenous medications is frequently viewed as complex, which makes this manual very valuable. It simplifies the process by providing the information necessary to safely administer the drug.The ^^Fast Facts^^ section allows you to access the necessary information quickly. The nursing consideration section is also well done, covering assessment, lab considerations, patient outcomes/evaluation criteria, intervention/plan of care, and patient/family teaching. No bibliography is provided.
