Injectable Drugs Guide

Front Cover
Pharmaceutical Press, 2010 - Medical - 907 pages
The administration of drugs by injection is an essential activity that is performed daily in many healthcare settings. This guide provides a user friendly, single point of reference for healthcare professionals in the safe and effective administration of injectable medicines. Injectable Drugs Guide consists of an A-Z of approximately 300 injectable drugs in monograph format, each covering the following topics: pre-treatment checks; dosing regimens; preparation and administration; compatibility and stability information; monitoring requirements during treatment; side effects, interactions and pharmacokinetic information. The Injectable Drugs Guide is designed to support the NPSA risk assessment process and each drug has a risk rating. The book provides a holistic approach to injectable medicines to meet the needs of the many disciplines involved in the clinical use of injectables and also those providing advice about injectable drug use. The online version of this book is available on Medicines Complete (www.medicinescomplete.com) where content will be regularly updated.
