Phillips, Lynn Dianne.
Nursing education consultant Phillips (nursing, Butte College) provides a manual of comprehensive information on infusion therapy for nursing students and practitioners. It ranges from simple to complex practices and incorporates theory with clinical application, with discussion of parenteral solutions, infusion equipment, peripheral and central line techniques and management, complications, medication infusion modalities, calculations, transfusions therapy, nutritional support, and phlebotomy. This edition has a new focus on evidence-based practice and care, a new chapter on math calculations, new critical thinking boxes, pediatric and geriatric content in a separate section in each chapter, and it incorporates Infusion Nurses Society standards and the most current 2008 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines for prevention of intravascular catheter-related infections. The CD-ROM contains 300 test questions with rationales, case studies from the book with questions and answers, and additional math calculations problems.
