The Syringe Driver Summary


The Syringe Driver: Continuous Subcutaneous Infusions in Palliative Care by Andrew Dickman

The syringe driver is the most useful method of drug administration for delivering a continuous subcutaneous infusion when other routes are inappropriate. Palliative care patients often have multiple symptoms that require the use of numerous drugs; as the patient's condition deteriorates the oral route is often no longer suitable and the syringe driver is then used to ensure continued symptom control. This route increases patient comfort as it avoids the need for repeated injections, plasma concentration levels of drugs remain constant and it maintains the patient's sense of independence. This highly practical book provides a wealth of information on the use of the syringe driver and on drug compatibilities for doctors, nurses and pharmacists who work in palliative care. The reader is presented with an overview of syringe drivers and continuous subcutaneous infusions followed by referenced information about drugs that are likely to be encountered, compatibility tables and information about symptom control in the last few days of life, concentrating specifically on the use of the syringe driver. This book will prove to be an essential source of information for doctors, nurses and pharmacists who work in palliative medicine.

The Syringe Driver Reviews


"This book is a valuable resource providing a wealth of information about the use of syringe drivers and CSCIs in palliative care and should be readily available wherever syringe drivers are used. One can only imagine the trouble experienced by the authors in researching, collating and presenting all the data, but I know the second edition will be even better." IAHPC Website "The straightforward comprehensive style and in-depth coverage of the subject should, along with its relatively low cost, ensure that this book will soon be found in nearly all palliative care units." Progress in Palliative Care, Vol 10, No 4 " ... a welcome resource ... This book will be an excellent source of information for palliative care practitioners and should be readily available as a valuable reference source." Palliative Medicine, 26 I would highly recommend it as a resource handbook for any service where syringe drivers are used for symptom control. Centre for Palliative Care Research and Education
