Saunders Nursing Drug Handbook 2021 1st Edition Pdf Book Description:
Nurses are faced with the ever-challenging responsibility of ensuring safe and effective drug therapy for their patients. Not surprisingly, the greatest challenge for nurses is keeping up with the overwhelming amount of new drug information, including the latest FDA-approved drugs and changes to already approved drugs, such as new uses, dosage forms, warnings, and much more. A DETAILED GUIDE TO THE SAUNDERS NURSING DRUG HANDBOOK An intensive review by consultants and reviewers helped us to revise the Saunders Nursing Drug Handbook so that it is most useful in both educational and clinical practice. The main objective of the handbook is to provide essential drug information in a user-friendly format. The bulk of the handbook contains an alphabetical listing of drug entries by generic name. To maintain the portability of this handbook and meet the challenge of keeping content current, we have also included additional information for some medications on the Evolve Internet site. Users can also choose from 100 monographs for the most commonly used medications and customize and print drug cards.
Evolve also includes drug alerts (e.g., medications removed from the market) and drug updates (e.g., new drugs, updates on existing entries). Information is periodically added, allowing the nurse to keep abreast of current drug information. We have incorporated the IV Incompatibilities/Compatibilities heading. The drugs listed in this section are compatible or incompatible with the generic drug when administered directly by IV push, via a Y-site, or via IV piggyback. We have highlighted the intravenous drug administration and handling information with a special heading icon and have broken it down by Reconstitution, Rate of Administration, and Storage. Dementia is a general term used describing a decline in mental ability that is severe enough to interfere with the function of daily living. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia. Cognitive loss in AD is associated with depletion of acetylcholine (involved with learning and memory). AD is confirmed only at autopsy and is characterized by the presence of beta-amyloid plaques on the outer portions of neurons
