A comprehensive annual guide for nursing students and practicing nurses, the 2014 Lippincott Nursing Drug Guide provides quick A-to-Z access to current, vital drug information. This edition includes information on over 1500 drugs and drug combinations. Complete monographs for over 700 common drugs contain generic and trade names, pronunciations, pregnancy risk category, controlled substance schedule (if appropriate), drug classes, therapeutic actions, indications, contraindications and cautions, available forms, dosages, pharmacokinetics, IV facts (if appropriate), adverse effects, interactions, and a nursing considerations section based on nursing process steps including assessment, interventions, and teaching points. The book also includes a 32-page full-color photo guide to pills and capsules for easy reference and multiple additional appendices that summarize key clinical information. The electronic ancillary contains 200 drug monographs and patient-teaching aids. This is the only drug book to include a "Do not crush" logo so nurses can quickly identify medications that should not be crushed - a key patient safety feature.
A Web Toolkit provides convenient features including FDA warnings, new drug and herb updates, medication administration and safety videos, dosage calculator, patient teaching handouts, pharmacology animations, English-Spanish audio medical and medication administration terms and phrases, audio generic drug pronunciations, medication administration procedures, NCLEX-style questions that comply with the new 2013 NCLEX test plan, mechanisms of action of selected drug classes, and a list of foods that contain tyramine. There is also a free CE test plus additional CE discounts, and various handy charts and information, such as controlled substance schedules, I.V. drug incompatibility, dialyzable drugs, toxic drug-drug interactions, and much more.
