Summaries
Main Description
This quick-reference handbook meets Infusion Nurses Society standards and provides the essential I.V. therapy facts that nurses need for clinical work. Information is presented in an easy-to-scan bulleted format, with visually compelling illustrations of techniques and eye-catching symbols that highlight warning alerts. Separate chapters focus on peripheral and central venous I.V. therapy, including coverage on state-of-the-art vascular access devices, PICC lines, and a quick-scan guide to CV catheters. Close attention is given to the prevention and management of specific complications of peripheral and central venous therapy. Other chapters cover I.V. medication administration, transfusions, chemotherapy infusions, and parenteral nutrition.
