Description

Choose the drug handbook trusted for nearly 30 years! The newest edition of a series that has been trusted by nurses for nearly 30 years, Mosby’s 2016 Nursing Drug Reference makes it easy to find the most vital information on the drugs you administer most frequently. More than 5,000 drugs are profiled — including 20 new entries for drugs recently approved by the FDA. And no other drug guide places a higher emphasis on patient safety, with Black Box Warnings for dangerous adverse reactions, highlighting of common and life-threatening side effects, and Safety Alert icons for situations requiring special attention. From nursing pharmacology expert Linda Skidmore-Roth, this perennial bestseller proves there is a difference in drug guides.

Key Features

  • More than 5,000 generic and trade-name drugs are profiled, covering almost every drug you will administer in practice or in clinicals.
  • Comprehensive drug monographs include generic names, Rx or OTC availability, pronunciations, U.S. and Canadian trade names, functional and chemical classification, controlled-substance schedule, do-not-confuse drugs, action, uses, unlabeled uses, dosages and routes, available forms, side effects, contraindications, precautions, pharmacokinetics, interactions (including drug/herb, drug/food and drug lab test), nursing considerations, and treatment of overdose.
