Critical care intravenous infusion drug handbook, 3d ed.

Algozzine, Gary J.

Elsevier Mosby


341 pages


Spiral Binding


The ring-bound, pocket-sized reference is designed primarily for critical care nurses, but also any other medical practitioners, to carry with them when administering or monitoring any of the 48 most common drugs given to patients in critical care settings. For each drug, information is provided on uses, solution preparation, dose, warnings, adverse reactions, incompatibility, compatibility for y-site administration, nursing considerations, and calculating drip rate. Other sections provide a quick guide for mixing intravenous infusion drugs, and guidelines for adult emergency cardiac care algorithms. Perhaps first for this edition, Algozzine (pharmacy, U. of Florida-Gainesville) is joined by Robert Algozzine (education, U. of North Carolina-Charlotte) and Deborah J. Lilly a director of clinical education development for nurses in Nashville.
