Summary

An easy-to-use reference for thousands of medications, Saunders Nursing Drug Handbook 2013 promotes safe patient care by guiding you through clinical priorities and providing comprehensive coverage of IV drug administration. It also helps you prevent medication errors with Black Box Alerts, information on drug dosages for combination drugs, and key nursing considerations. Side effects are separated by their frequency. Written by oncology nurse Barbara Hodgson and hospital pharmacist Robert Kizior, this handbook is organized alphabetically by generic drug name for quick access to essential information. It's ideal for the busy nurse! UNIQUE! Combined nursing and pharmacology authorship ensures clinical accuracy of nearly 900 generic name drugs - encompassing over 4,000 trade name drugs. Detailed information on each drug includes side effects and adverse reactions broken down by frequent, occasional, and rare, with percentages of occurrence. Safe drug administration is promoted by clearly marked high-alert drugs, Tall Man spellings, and an appendix with sound-alike and look-alike drugs. UNIQUE! Monographs of frequently used herbs are included, plus additional herb information in the appendix, with potential herbal interactions indicated within drug entries for quick reference. Information on combined drugs and fixed combinations covers drug dosage options for specific diseases. Lifespan and disorder-related dosage variations focus on the needs of specific populations, such as pediatric, geriatric, hepatic, and immune- or renal-compromised patients. Nursing implications organized in the functional nursing process framework include content on baseline assessment, intervention/evaluation, and patient and family teaching. Comprehensive foldout IV compatibility chart provides compatibility information for 65 intravenous drugs. List of newly approved drugs in the front of the book makes it easy to locate the latest drugs. An Evolve companion website includes customizable and printable monographs for 200 of the most commonly prescribed drugs, techniques of medication administration, and more. New drug monographs are included for 27 new FDA-approved drugs. Updated monographs include new interactions, precautions, alerts, patient teaching instructions, and other need-to-know information. Updated Black Box Alerts highlight drugs with a significant risk of serious or life-threatening adverse effects. Expanded IV content includes IV compatibilities, rates of infusion, reconstitutions, drip rates, test doses, flushing, and incompatibilities.
