Mosby's Critical Care Drug Reference is a critical care drug handbook that covers all of the drugs commonly administered in critical care settings, as well as those prescription, over-the-counter, and complementary and herbal preparations that have an impact on a patient's health while in the critical care setting. Its authoritative content has been carefully tailored to meet the needs of critical care providers.
• Up-to-date drug monographs focus on the drugs and the types of drug information that critical care providers need to know for day-to-day clinical practice.
