Pediatric Injectable Drugs (the Teddy Bear Book) Eleventh Edition by Stephanie J. Phelps; Tracy M. Hagemann; Kelley R. Lee; A. Jill ThompsonIf you work with children, you must have this book. For more than two decades, Pediatric Injectable Drugs (The Teddy Bear Book), has served an important and continuing need for reliable evidence-based information specific to pediatric injectable drugs. The tenth edition of this invaluable reference has grown to cover 238 drugs commonly used in the treatment of infants and children, including 20 new to this edition. The Teddy Bear Book covers neonates through adolescents, with age-specific dosing and administration guidelines throughout. With three new editors, who collectively bring 75 years of pediatric pharmacy practice experience to the book, the tenth edition is the most thorough and comprehensive reference yet. As with previous editions, the structure of each of the drug monographs covers the following areas: Brand Names Medication Error Potential Contraindications and Warnings Infusion-Related Cautions Dosage (age specific) Dosage Adjustment in Organ Dysfunction Maximum Dosage Additives Suitable Diluents Maximum Concentrations Preparation and Delivery IV Push Intermittent Infusion Continuous Infusion Other Routes of Administration Comments Also included is a comprehensive list of abbreviations and more than 4800 references. This is the only pediatric (neonates through adolescents) parenteral drug reference that covers limited fluid amounts, maximum doses, and limited intravenous sites--issues that pediatric practitioners often face in their patients. When it comes to pediatric injectable drugs, valid safety and efficacy research can be hard to locate. This indispensable reference changes all that.
