Clinicians with EN patients will find ASPEN’s Guidebook on Enteral Medication Administration an essential resource. It’s the only US book specifically targeting medication delivery via feeding tubes.
With the ongoing ENFit® transition, all care providers need to know how to give medications via feeding tubes. The easy-to-find information in the Guidebook will be useful to pharmacists, nurses, dietitians, and physicians involved in managing these patients.
Edited by Dr. Joseph Boullata, it is the first reference available that pulls together information from disparate sources.
The book is conveniently divided into two parts:
Part 1 delivers the most current information on:
- Enteral access devices, including new connectors to make medication administration safer
- Drug interactions with nutrition, including tube feeding
- Foundational principles of drug solubility and oral bioavailability
- Recommendations for drug preparation and administration
Part 2 presents more than 160 individual drug monographs featuring:
- Summaries of pharmaceutical and pharmacokinetic data
- Enteral administration and nutrition considerations
- Specific recommendations on how to prepare and administer the drug
- References to notable trials and review articles
