Summary

Fully revised and updated, this clinical pharmacology textbook presents pharmacologic principles in a readily accessible format.

Drugs are presented in a prototype chart format, providing quick access to generic and brand names, dosages, uses, and considerations, as well as the nursing process in drug therapy. Nearly 100 updated drug charts list dosages, indications, contraindications, drug-lab-food interactions, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, therapeutic effects, side effects, and adverse reactions.
