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.

  • Provides the latest information on drug therapy in the intensive care unit
  • New monographs have been added and old ones thoroughly updated
  • Includes a unique 'IV drugs compatibility chart' so that readers can identify compatible and non-compatible drugs combinations
