The authors are recognized experts in pediatric pharmacy who provide a book with the information necessary to administer parenteral medications to this fragile patient population.

Features

Information on over 245 parenteral medications is delivered clearly and concisely in monograph format. It includes cautions and warnings, dosing including dose adjustments in organ failure, guidance on dosing in obese patients, appropriate diluents and the preparation and storage of parenterals. Of particular importance in the pediatric population are the sections on maximum concentration and instructions on administering medications to children via IV push, intermittent or continuous infusion.
