Davis's Drug Guide for Physicians and Integrated Calculators 4.0


Davis's Drug Guide for Physicians with Integrated Calculators 4.0, based on Davis's Drug Guide 11th Ed (FA Davis Co) provides the most comprehensive, up-to-date drug information in well-organized, nursing-focused monographs, adapted for the physician. It includes extensive supplemental material in 18 appendices, thoroughly addresses the issue of safe medication administration, educates the reader about 50 different therapeutic classes of drugs, and conveniently includes invaluable calculation tools by Medical Wizards.

In this 11th edition, we have continued the tradition of focusing on safe medication administration and even more information about health care’s most vulnerable patients: children, the elderly, pregnant women, and breastfeeding mothers. Look for more Pedi, Geri, OB, and Lactation headings throughout the monographs. In addition, we’ve expanded our information relevant to Canadian students and nurses. You’ll find a new appendix comparing Canadian and U.S. pharmaceutical practices, more Canada-only combination drugs in the Combination Drugs appendix, and additional Canadian brand names in the drug monographs. To help you find this information quickly, we’ve also added a maple leaf icon in the index next to each Canadian entry.

Davis's Drug Guide for Physicians with Integrated Calculators merges the advantages of weight based drug dosing calculation with a comprehensive drug reference. The user should review the integrated critical care infusion calculators for items such as dopamine, nitroglycerin, amiodarone, and other common critical care medications. The flashing red calculator icon alerts the user when looking up a drug that a calculator is available.
