Description
Now in its sixth edition, the Handbook of Drugs in Intensive Care: An A-Z Guide is the essential guide to using drugs safely and effectively in the intensive care setting.
The book is split into two sections: an A-Z guide to the drugs available, and concise notes on the key topics and situations faced on a daily basis. The A-Z section provides succinct information on each drug including uses, limitations, administration directions and adverse effects. The second section details practice guidelines such as insulin therapy, Parkinson's disease therapy when nil-by-mouth, and drug dosing in renal failure. This revised edition includes seventeen new drug monographs and covers several new topics, including blood glucose management. A colour chart showing drug compatibility for intravenous administration is included at the back of the book. Presented in a concise, compact format, this book is an invaluable resource for doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals caring for critically ill patients.

Key Features:
  • Provides the latest information on drug therapy in the intensive care unit
  • New monographs have been added and old ones thoroughly updated
  • Includes a unique 'IV drugs compatibility chart' so that readers can identify compatible and non-compatible drugs combinations
