Doody Core Title
Updated to deliver the most current standards, this is a unique prescribing reference for APRN students and advanced health care providers in all practice settings who need guidance on prescribing drugs for patients with acute, episodic, and chronic health problems.
Concise, easy to read, and updated throughout, the resource delivers pharmacotherapy regimens for more than 600 diagnoses—including over 30 that are new.
Listed alphabetically by diagnosis, pharmacotherapy regimens include, for each diagnosis, drug choices listed by generic name, FDA pregnancy category, generic/over-the-counter availability, adult/pediatric dosing regimens, brand names, forms of dosage, and additives. Clinically useful information such as laboratory values to be monitored, patient teaching points, and safety information is interspersed throughout each diagnosis. Additional quick-access features include information presented in convenient table format and an alphabetical cross-reference index of drugs by generic and brand name, with FDA pregnancy category and controlled drug schedule (I, II, III, IV, V).
