Synopsis: A comprehensive reference for nursing students as well as a valuable reference for practicing nurses, 2001 PDR Nurse's Drug Handbook offers the most complete listing of drugs, organized alphabetically by generic name. The available form(s) of each drug and the dosage(s) for each form are also included. A separate section organized by therapeutic class provides core information that applies to all drugs within the class. Additional information for each drug is provided in the A-Z section. A color insert provides more than 200 photos of tablets and capsules, covering a selection of the most frequently prescribed drugs. The nursing consideration section (highlighted in color) in each monograph organizes nursing actions according to the steps of the nursing process. In the Administration section, IV administration considerations are identified for quick access. Other useful information for students and nurses included a list of common sound alike drug names, commonly used abbreviations and symbols and a list of drug monographs that can be found on the Web site(no longer included in the handbook). Appendices include the elements of a prescription, FDA assigned pregnancy categories, nomogram for estimating body surface area, easy formulas for IV rate calculation, commonly accepted therapeutic drug levels, adult IVPB medication administration guidelines and riders, and a preview of last minute FDA-approved drugs.
