Description:This is the 13th edition of a handbook that extensively addresses medications in children, focusing on usage, warnings, adverse reactions, drug interactions, mechanisms of actions, pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, and nursing/patient information. The previous edition was published in 2004.
Purpose:This book is intended as a practical and convenient guide for dosage and usage of medications in children. The objectives are worthy and certainly met by the authors.
Audience:It is written for all pediatric healthcare providers. Medical students, residents, and staff physicians in almost all pediatric specialties will greatly benefit from this book.
Features:The drug information is presented in an alphabetical list, using a simple and consistent format throughout. The entries include a pronunciation guide, safety issues, brand names, generic availability, usage, lactation, contraindications, warnings, adverse reactions, mechanism of action, pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, patient/additional information, and references. This is valuable information in an easy to use format, which provides benefit to all healthcare providers regardless of level of training.
