The #1 IV drug handbook for nearly 40 years, Intravenous Medications: A Handbook for Nurses and Health Professionals is the go-to resource for all the information you need to safely administer more than 350 intravenous drugs. Whether you prefer the convenient electronic format or the newly redesigned portable print version, this new edition offers alphabetical organization, a detailed appendix of generic and trade names, pharmacologic actions, hundreds of new drug facts, and entries for new IV drugs recently approved by the FDA. There's no other resource more trusted for its accuracy and comprehensive coverage.

  • UNIQUE! Thorough coverage of more than 350 IV drugs offers more than any other comparable handbook.
  • UNIQUE! Layout in the print version keeps all dosage information for each drug on either a single page or a two-page spread, ensuring that the health care worker does not contaminate hands by having to turn a page.
  • Consistent, easy-to-use format provides all the essential clinical information on IV drug administration.
  • Alphabetical listing of IV drugs is organized by generic name for quick clinical reference.
  • Updated IV drug dilution and dosage information - in a convenient chart form within monographs where appropriate -helps you quickly locate essential information.

  • Identifying icons (such as Black Box Warnings) and design features also make it easy to locate key information
  • NEW! Larger page size of the print version reduces the thickness of the book and makes content easier to navigate.
  • NEW! Printed thumb tabs added to the print version assist in locating information quickly.

After devoting 30 years to Nursing, I remember quite well how many handbooks and guides I took to work with me, regardless of whether it was an 8 hour shift, or a 12 hour shift. The Unit I worked on wasn't a factor either. Whether it's CCU, ICU, MED-SURG or even if you work in a pharmacy, this Guide is a valuable tool for All Nurses and Health Care Professionals. It contains more than 350 IV Drugs, is in Alphabetical Organization, which does matter, because every minute of your time counts. In addition, it provides a detailed appendix of generic and trade names, Very Important to have handy. Also, it provides specific drug actions, and hundreds of drug facts. This essential guide is a handbook that will be used over-and-over, despite what unit you are working on in a hospital setting. It is also updated with the addition of New drugs. Easy to read, and essential guide that is a Treasure for Health Care Professionals. Highly Recommended!

I've used these books for many years and find that you can't buy any other book and get the same concise information in a format that is easy to use.

I received it in a timely manner and it is in amazing condition! It is a great size to throw in my bag to bring with me to clinical for school and it was a lot cheaper than the 2014 edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nurses's Drug Handbook for IV Meds June 20, 2014
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
I have used many of the same brand books for regular meds over the years and always was pleased with them. This is the first time I've used an IV med book with this brand name and I am just as pleased. It gives concise, yet thorough information in a very reader friendly layout that I like. Info is easy to find and easy to read. I would buy another one and will continue to use this. I like it a lot. If you've ever used another IV drug resource book, you probably know how confusing and incomplete they can be. This is not like that.

2.0 out of 5 stars Inaccurate April 9, 2014
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
The chart in the back of the book listed D5 1/2 NS as incompatible with calcium gluconate, but every other source including micromedex AND the hospital pharmacy says it IS compatible.

What else is wrong? What if this book claims something IS compatible when it's not?!?
