157 pages




Fulcher (retired from Swainsboro Technical College) and Frazier (retired from Ivy Tech State College) provide student nurses and medical assistants with basic knowledge needed to safely administer intravenous (IV) fluids and medications. There is a basic review of anatomy and asepsis, followed by chapters on equipment and supplies for IV therapy, foundations of IV therapy, and starting an IV infusion. The text assumes the student has been taught basic sterile techniques and has a basic knowledge of anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, and dosage calculations, although reviews of these areas are provided. Learning features include objectives, key terms, review questions and answers, competency check sheets, and practice problems.
