More About This Textbook

Overview

Saunders Nursing Drug Handbook is a reliable and easy-to-use source of current drug information needed by the busy health care provider. What separates this book from others is that it includes comprehensive coverage of IV drug administration and it promotes efficient clinical use because it's organized according to the way nurses practice. Organized alphabetically by generic drug name, this book provides essential information for thousands of medications in a user-friendly format. A bound-in mini CD-ROM includes searchable and printable drug cards for 400 drugs. A companion website provides updates on drugs recently approved by the FDA, alerts, helpful weblinks, and more.

• Provides a comprehensive foldout IV compatibility chart with compatibility information for 65 intravenous drugs.
• Presents over 1,000 generic name drugs (encompassing over 4,000 trade name drugs) organized alphabetically with A to Z tabs to provide quick and easy access.
• Distinguishes side effects and adverse reactions and lists the effect or reaction by frequency of occurrence, which allows the nurse to easily identify which are most likely to occur.
• Incorporates frequently used herb monographs in the A to Z portion of the book, plus additional herb information in the appendix. Herbal information is also cross-referenced to the appendix, as applicable.
