Summary

Summary

Appropriate as a text in training those who will administer medications, this concise, field-tested book provides an extensive framework of knowledge that can be acquired within a limited time-frame. It is designed to meet the needs of students in nursing and medical assistant programs and be adaptable to the requirements of students in allied health programs. Part I introduces the reader to the fascinating subject of drugs, their sources and uses. Calculations are simplified and review questions and administration checklists help organize the information. Part II organizes the drugs according to the body systems. Each classification is described, along with characteristics of typical drugs, side effects, cautions, interactions, and patient education for each category.
