Overview

This PDA companion software gives rapid access to all the drug information you need - at the convenient tap of a stylus. It contains the same great features found in the book to promote safe medication administration and prevent drug administration errors, such as Do Not Crush and Alert icons, high alert drug identification, FDA mandated "Tall Man" spellings for easily confused drug names, specially grouped administration-route considerations, highlighted lifespan considerations, hundreds of special new do-not-confuse headings, and overdose treatment. In addition to content found in the book, this PDA software also includes handy calculators - essential tools when verifying dosages prior to administration. The PDA software is navigated using the MobiPocket ReaderPro, making it virtually platform-independent. The ReaderPro is small enough that it will not slow down even older devices, and it offers many useful built-in features, including full text search, annotation and highlighting capability, bookmarks with easy link-style navigation, adjustable font size, type, text alignment, and color, multiple indexes, removable memory card support, and a customizable toolbar.

  • Nursing Drug Dosage Calculators provide users with quick, portable confirmation of key drug calculations.
