A comprehensive, annual guide for nursing students and practicing nurses, the 2013 Lippincott's Nursing Drug Guideprovides quick A-to-Z access to current, vital drug information. The book has complete monographs for more than 700 common drugs. In addition, an appendix summarizes key information on more than 200 less commonly used drugs. Complete monographs contain generic and trade names, pronunciations, pregnancy risk category, controlled substance schedule (if appropriate), drug classes, therapeutic actions, indications, contraindications and cautions, available forms, dosages, pharmacokinetics, IV facts (if appropriate), adverse effects, interactions, and a nursing considerations section based on nursing process steps including assessment, interventions, and teaching points. The book also includes a 32-page full-color photo guide to pills and capsules for easy reference and multiple additional appendices that summarize key clinical information. This is the only drug book to include a "DO NOT CRUSH" logo so nurses can quickly identify medications that should not be crushed - a key patient safety feature. The Web Toolkit provides convenient features including FDA warnings, new drug and herb updates, medication administration and safety videos, dosage calculator, patient teaching handouts, pharmacology animations, English-Spanish audio medical and medication administration terms and phrases, audio generic drug pronunciations, medication administration procedures, NCLEX-style questions, mechanisms of action of selected drug classes, foods that contain tyramine, one free CE test plus additional CE discounts, and various handy charts and information, such as controlled substance schedules, I.V. drug incompatibility, dialyzable drugs, toxic drug-drug interactions, and much more.
