Book DescriptionThe Pediatric Prescriber's Handbook: Guided Dosing to Improve the Safety and Accuracy of Prescribing Medication to Children.
A must-have pocket reference when prescribing medication to children.
The Pediatric Prescriber's Handbook is a uniquely designed reference for the pediatric prescriber. Only the essential information needed at the point of prescribing is provided in a clear and concise framework. Essential pediatric safety considerations have been carefully integrated into the text to avoid common dosing errors seen in prescribing. Contains over 200 pediatric medications with guided dosing regimens for the most commonly prescribed indications.
This essential pocket reference is for the pediatric physician, physician in training, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, pediatric nurse, and pharmacist.
Use this handbook to improve the safety and accuracy of drug dosing in children.
This pocket handbook was developed to provide the pediatric prescriber with a clear and concise dosing reference at the point of prescribing. It is not intended to aid in drug selection, provide drug-drug interactions, or pharmacokinetic information; other, more appropriate, resources should be consulted for such purposes.
The content is specifically focused on guided dosing for the most common indications, for the most commonly used medications in pediatrics.
Often technology and medical equipment are not configured to address the unique dosing, dilutions, standard concentrations, and infusion rates for pediatric patients. These investments in procedures and protocols to support clinical decision making are usually limited to Children's hospitals. But, the reality is that most children will be seen in facilities focused on the care of adult patients. They don't have the comprehensive safety measures and infrastructure to prevent common dosing errors or onsite staff pediatric pharmacists to review every order.
The Pediatric Prescriber's Handbook provides guided dosing to aid in the challenge of the unique issues associated with pediatric medication dosing. Unlike adult medicine that primarily uses fixed dosing, most pediatric medications are weight-based, and require manipulation/dilution of commercially available products intended for use in adult patients.
Guided dosing utilizes weight-based dosing, i.e. "mg/kg/dose" in the framework of initial dosing, recommended titration intervals, as well as maximum and maintenance doses. It provides references for the prescriber to not exceed the "Adult initial dose" or "Adult Max dose". Pediatric dosages (mg/kg/dose), should not exceed adult dosages (mg/dose). Having these "visual" reference points, will serve as a double check and aid in avoiding 10-fold calculation errors.
