Summary

Written for nurse practitioners and physician's assistants, this advanced pharmacotherapeutics text focuses on aspects of applied therapeutics for primary care providers. The volume is organized according to body systems and explores drugs used to manage more than 56 common conditions, such as: hypertension, peptic ulcer disease, and asthma. Using algorithms to illustrate the process of drug selection, this book provides guidelines for drug selection, lifespan considerations, therapeutic drug monitoring, adverse reactions, poor outcomes and information about when to change therapy, and alternative therapy. Therapy is discussed using first-, second- and third-line drug choices. Comprehensive yet concise case studies, written for adult learners, help readers retain information.
