The aim of this work is to provide easily accessed information to support the work of nurses and other health care professionals. It brings together all aspects of the drug action to provide a basis for deeper study of pharmacological topics.
All nurses and students need to have a thorough working knowledge of drugs, in addition to being able to handle and administer them safely. To this effect, they also need to understand why a drug is prescribed, exactly how it acts on the body, and why they are sometimes contraindicated or cause side-effects. This is the first user-friendly manual of its kind to demystify this often confusing but key area of clinical nursing, and to provide a sound basis for patient care. Featuring a simple yet dynamic text design, complemented by flowcharts and tables, the full range of prescription drugs are covered along with their effects on homeostasis. Features: * User-friendly presentation of material * Canadian binding for "workstation" appeal * Physiological explanations of how side-effects may arise * Provides details of patient care specifically associated with named drug therapies * Generic and trade names given
