Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Laura C. Sheely, BSN, MScN (Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing)
Description: Originally published in 1996, this third edition provides updated information including the addition of new drugs, an expanded set of appendixes, and an improved index.
Purpose: The stated purpose is to provide the most complete, up-to-date drug information available. Building and improving upon previous editions, this book is complete in terms of the drugs that are included and comprehensive in the information provided for each drug.
Audience: This book is for the nurse practitioner engaged in patient care. There are many drug reference books on the market, but few if any, are geared specifically to the nurse practitioner.
Features: Entries for each drug follow a format that includes teaching points for patient education as well as the standard components of indications, dosing, adverse effects, use in geriatric patients and pregnancy and lactation, as well as special considerations. Worthy of note is the detailed information provided on drug interactions, which is broken down into drug-drug, drug-food, drug-herb, and drug-lifestyle (which includes information on interactions with alcohol, sun exposure, and smoking). Detailed information about adjusting dosages in renal failure is provided where relevant. The best features are the emphasis on patient education, which is particularly important for the intended audience, the very detailed information on drug interactions, the improved indexing, and the useful appendixes. The book has no notable shortcomings.
Assessment: I own and have used extensively the original edition of this book. The format renders the information easily accessible. This latest edition provides a necessary update since this is a rapidly changing body of information. In addition to the updated information, there are some enhancements that make it even nicer than previous editions. I enthusiastically endorse this book.

This pharmacology reference book is an up-to-date compilation of the prescription and over-the-counter medications currently on the market. Pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, contraindications, precautions, interactions, effects on diagnostic tests, adverse reactions, overdose and treatment, special considerations, and patient information are included for each medication. Generic drugs are presented in alphabetical order. In addition, major pharmacological classifications are presented and discussed as classes. There are dual purposes for this publication. The first is to provide advanced practice nurses with comprehensive, accurate, and current drug information in a user-friendly format. The second purpose, which is a natural result of the first, is to enhance provision of safe, cost-effective, and humane health care. The projected audience for this book includes nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, clinical nurse specialists, nurse anesthetists, and psychiatric nurse specialists. The preface author is a cofounder of the nurse practitioner movement. Loretta Ford is a credible authority on the pharmacotherapy rescue needs of advance practice nurses. There are several notable features included in this publication. More than 100 of the most commonly prescribed medications and diagnostics are illustrated in alphabetic order for ease in location. The appendixes include therapeutic windows for drugs frequently monitored, commonly used and accepted abbreviations, APN prescribing authority on a state-by-state basis, poisoning antidotes, and a diagram of the components of a correctly written prescription, Currently approved agents are included in table form. The book is attractive,compact, and portable. This is a valuable pharmacology reference for the advanced practice nurse in the clinical setting. It succeeds in condensing a multitude of information into a pertinent, user-friendly format of prescribing and monitoring data.
