The Nurse's Handbook of I.V. Drugs includes individual entries for all the approximately 1100 drugs that a nurse administers intravenously. The drugs are organized alphabetically by generic names, and the trade names are listed out in the index. Each entry includes: chemical and therapeutic classes, pregnancy risk category, controlled substance schedule (where applicable); indications and dosages, including dosage adjustments in special situations; route, onset, peak, and duration chart; mechanism of action (many are illustrated); incompatibilities, interactions, and adverse reactions; and nursing considerations, including warnings and precautions, preparation and administration tips on reconstituting, diluting, storing, handling, and disposing of the drug; and patient-teaching suggestions and guidelines. The frontmatter includes three brief essays on the overview of pharmacology, the principles of I.V. administration, and I.V. therapy and the nursing process. Appendices cover more specialized information, including equianalgesic doses for opioid antagonists, calculating the strength of a solution, parenteral dosages, and flow rates, and determining body mass. There is also a table that presents I.V. antineoplastic drugs.
