"The Drug Therapy in Nursing is most up-to-date and complete textbook-cum-guide of cardiac drugs, which covers both individual drugs and therapeutic strategies. The quality of the book can be gauzed from the fact that it is carefully revised to include every new drug in cardiac practice. This book contains information on drug interactions, combination therapy, and the use of cardiovascular agents in special populations such as the elderly, pregnant women, and physically active patients.
This easy-to-understand textbook is a comprehensive and extensively referenced text that meets the unique educational and evidence-based practice needs of pediatric nurses, particularly in the specialty of general drug. The book's aim of providing objective evidence has been achieved with research-based facts distilled from textbooks and various studies published in medical and nursing journals." (jacket)
