The 29th edition of the best-selling, original drug handbook for nurses has been revamped expressly to appeal to the education market as well as the practice market. This comprehensive reference provides complete monographs for more than 900 generic and 3,000 trade drugs.

Each monograph consists of generic and trade names, pregnancy risk category, controlled substance schedule (if applicable), available forms, indications and dosages (including dosage adjustments) administration for all routes (plus I.V. drug incompatibilities (for I.V. drugs), drug action (including tables showing route, onset, peak, and duration), adverse reactions, interactions, effects on lab test results, contraindications, nursing considerations, and patient teaching. A new chapter on drug classes is being added to the front of the book. The back-of-book CD is being ported to a Web toolkit with videos about medication administration, a color-photo pill guide, dosage calculators, interactions algorithms, and much more.
