The drug entries include chemical and therapeutic classes, indications and dosages, and nursing considerations. The entries also give information on incompatibilities, contraindications, and adverse reactions. It contains mechanism-of-action illustrations that enhance the detailed explanations of how drugs work at the cellular, tissue, or organ levels. This handbook provides dosage adjustments for elderly patients, patients with renal impairment, and others with special needs. Warnings are given that highlight important facts you need to know before, during, or after drug administration. It also contains additional reference sections that cover the nurse's role in all aspects of behavioral and mental health drug therapy, classification of seizures, and herbal remedies with psychotropic effects.
