Drugs Handbook 2010 (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


It is essential that all involved in a patient's healthcare should have ready access to information on the various medicines prescribed or bought over the counter. This book provides quick and easy access to this information and acts as a concise guide to the mechanism of action, therapeutic indications and chief unwanted effects of medicines available in the United Kingdom. A new feature of the 2010 edition of the Drugs Handbook is the inclusion of information on registered herbal medicines. There are entries for new medicines, indicating those that are currently being intensively monitored by the Commission on Human Medicines, and existing entries have been updated to include new information. The entries are clearly arranged in alphabetical order. The book takes the following user-friendly structure: a- Part I lists the drugs under their approved names, giving therapeutic indications, chief unwanted effects and precautions, and a brief indication of their mechanism of action. a- Part II lists the drugs under their trade or brand names, with crossreferences to the appropriate approved names. a- Part III lists registered herbal medicines under their common names and trade names.

This practical and concise text is a valuable reference guide for student and qualified nurses, and also for students and practitioners in other healthcare professions.
