Book description

Now in its sixth edition, the Handbook of Drugs in Intensive Care is the essential guide to using drugs safely and effectively in the intensive care setting. The book is split into two sections: an A-Z guide to the drugs available, and concise notes on the key topics and situations faced on a daily basis. The A-Z section provides succinct information on each drug including uses, limitations, administration directions and adverse effects. The second section details practice guidelines such as insulin therapy, Parkinson's disease therapy when nil-by-mouth, and drug dosing in renal failure. This revised edition includes seventeen new drug monographs and covers several new topics, including blood glucose management. A colour chart showing drug compatibility for intravenous administration is included at the back of the book. Presented in a concise, compact format, this book is an invaluable resource for doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals caring for critically ill patients.

Reviews

Review of previous edition:'The book is particularly strong on newer medicines … and is stuffed full of useful pearls and snippets of information … an excellent book that can act as a touchstone for front-line clinical pharmacists in critical care.'

‘Overall this book certainly accomplishes the goal of providing a practical reference for medication administration. It is rather portable and could fit in the pocket of a white coat, it is well organized, and critical information is easily accessible and digestible … the sixth edition of the Handbook of Drugs in Intensive Care, An A-Z Guide offers a compact easy-to-use reference for physicians and nurses to guide optimal and safe drug treatment for most critically ill patients.’
