Prentice Hall Nurse's Drug Guide 2004 is a current and reliable reference designed to provide comprehensive information needed to make appropriate decisions regarding drug administration. This new edition includes 36 monographs for new drugs recently approved by the FDA, and several drugs removed from the market have been eliminated and archived on the Companion Website accompanying this handbook. On pages xiii-xix, the user will find a current listing of drug classifications and their associated drug prototypes with page references to those drug entries. This list serves as a valuable tool, especially to students learning pharmacology and familiarizing themselves with drug families and prototypes.
Each drug monograph provides the necessary information for safe and effective drug administration. The user should read all the information provided. Occasionally, the user will be referred to Appendix F, Glossary of Key Terms, Clinical Conditions, and Associated Signs and Symptoms. This unique glossary provides valuable information regarding common assessment findings related to therapeutic effectiveness or ineffectiveness of specific drugs.
The authors recognize that the decision-making process related to drug administration is a cyclical one. For example, assessments are made both prior to and after drug administration. Thus, clinical implications may change as a result of an achieved therapeutic effect, therapeutic failure, manifestation of an adverse effect, or demonstration of a learning need. The authors believe that the users of this drug reference will find that the clear and logical design of the drug monographs facilitates decision-making.
While some advanced practice nurses and other health professionals now have prescriptive privileges, the term physician is used throughout this book to designate the prescriber of medications.
The Prentice Hall Nurse's Drug Guide 2004 has undergone a major revision. Health professionals, pharmacists, and students from across the country reviewed the content of this handbook and provided helpful suggestions on how it could be made more useful. Based upon these comments, the authors reorganized monographs and added new elements to every monograph in the book. To help readers better understand how to use the drug guide, the authors illustrate and describe all the components of a drug monograph in the next section.
In this drug guide, all drugs are listed alphabetically according to their generic names. However, each drug is indexed by both its generic and trade names in the back of the guide to make it easier for the user to locate individual drug monographs. Trade names followed by a maple leaf indicate that brand name of the drug is available only in Canada. If a drug is not listed in the alphabetical section, it may be a combination drug, which is a drug made up of more than one generic component. These combination drugs are listed under their trade names in the index and in Appendix E, Prescription Combination Drugs. The appendix identifies the generic components and the amount of each generic drug contained in the combination.
