Prentice Hall has been a standard for safe, effective, and current drug information. Now you can get more than just basic pediatric drug information with the Prentice Hall Pediatric Drug Guide, the only resource currently that addresses the specialty of pediatric pharmacology in the context of nursing care. This easy-to use reference focuses exclusively on pediatric medications and offers a complete discussion of physiological and developmental considerations and techniques of administration. A portable guide to safe and effective drug administration for all who prescribe or use pediatric medications, it presents a full array of relevant information on each medication to ease discussions with patients and families.
This reference is divided into three main sections: (1); Part One focuses on the knowledge needed to administer drugs to children; (2); Part Two contains drug monographs for most medications that are administered to children; and (3); appendices which contain much useful information. While our
primary users are expected to be practicing pediatric nurses and student nurses, we are confident it will be an asset to nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and other health professionals as well.
Features included in this resource:
-Over 500 pediatric drugs
-Organized alphabetically by generic name
-Emphasis on nursing implications and teaching for children families
-Quick access to availability, route and dosages, administration, adverse effects, contraindications, interactions, uses, therapeutic effects, pharmacokinetics, and nursing implications
-Appendices include information about controlled substances, antineoplastics, resuscitation medications, immunizations, intravenous drug compatibility, corticosteroids, pregnancy categories, terms, and abbreviations
Every effort has been made to ensure that this resource is as accurate, current, and practical as possible so that users can find ready answers to clinical problems.
