Description: The 31st edition of the best-selling, original drug handbook for nurses has been revised and updated to appeal to the education market as well as the practice market (nursing process information for each drug monograph has been added to the Web Toolkit)! This comprehensive reference provides complete monographs for more than 900 generic and 3,000 trade name drugs. The monographs are consistently formatted for ease of use, and they focus on the practical information that nurses need. Each monograph consists of generic and trade names, pronunciation key, pregnancy risk category, pharmacologic class, controlled substance schedule (if applicable), available forms, indications and dosages, administration (with drug incompatibilities for I.V. drugs), action (including tables showing route, onset, peak, duration, and half-life), adverse reactions, interactions, effects on lab test results, contraindications, nursing considerations, and patient teaching. The companion Web Toolkit has been expanded to provide more convenient features that will appeal to both practicing nurses and students, including the latest FDA warnings, new drug and herb updates, medication administration and safety videos, dosage calculators, patient teaching aids, mechanisms and sites of action of selected drugs, pharmacology animations, English-Spanish audio medical and medication administration terms and phrases, audio generic drug pronunciations, medication administration procedures, NCLEX-style questions, nursing process information for each drug monograph, 1 free CE test plus additional CE discounts, and handy reference charts on such topics as controlled substance schedules, I.V. drug incompatibility, foods that contain tyramine, dialyzable drugs, toxic drug-drug interactions, and much more.
