Handbook of Drugs in Intensive Care (3rd ed.)

An A - Z Guide

by Henry G. W. Paw,

A thoroughly updated edition of this well-established guide to drugs and prescribing for intensive care. 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 complications that may arise in patients with particular conditions such as diabetes, epilepsy and renal failure, and other factors that may affect drug prescribing. There is also a section of key data, showing weight conversions, body mass index and corresponding dosage calculations. This edition includes a colour fold-out chart showing drug compatibility for intravenous administration. Presented in a concise, compact format, this book is an invaluable resource for doctors, nurses and other medical professionals caring for critically ill patients.

In The Press

'The A-Z section provides concise information on each drug including indications, administration directions and adverse effects. I particularly like the 'how not to use' a drug which reminds me of some of the important things to avoid when a certain drug is used. the second section has concise descriptions … there is a lot of useful information in this book that is not readily available in some bigger textbooks … [the book] is value for money and will be invaluable to all ICU medical and nursing staff working in the intensive care unit.'
