If you work with children, you must have this book. For more than two decades, Pediatric Injectable Drugs (The Teddy Bear Book) has served an important and continuing need for reliable evidence-based information specific to pediatric injectable drugs, including all drugs commonly used in the treatment of infants and children from neonates to adolescents, with age-specific dosing and administration guidelines throughout.
ASHP's classic reference on pediatric drugs is now fully revised with the eleventh edition of Pediatric Injectable Drugs. Included in this edition are 15 new monographs, with 241 monographs in total. Each monograph now includes a new category on obesity dosing. All information is compiled in an evidence-based manner from the primary literature, including case reports, observational reports, and comparative trials.
As with previous editions, the structure of each of the drug monographs covers the following areas:
- Brand names.
- Medication error potential.
- Contraindications and warnings.
- Infusion-related cautions.
- Age-specific dosage.
- Dosage adjustment in organ dysfunction.
- Maximum dosage.
- Suitable diluents.
- Maximum concentrations.
- Preparation and delivery.
- IV push.
- Intermittent infusion.
- Continuous infusion.
- Other routes of administration.
When it comes to pediatric injectable drugs, valid safety and efficacy research can be hard to locate: this indispensable reference changes all that.
