Emergency medicine pharmacology is a very broad topic. From cardiac to obstetrical emergencies, there is a need for a reference guide that can provide the fundamental information necessary for appropriate pharmacologic treatment. These guidelines provide an invaluable resource for students, paramedics and other practicing healthcare professionals by supplying the necessary facts on over ninety different commonly used emergency medications.
This guide provides:
- An A to Z list of common emergency medications.
- Single page charts containing the medication’s class, mechanism, simple pharmacokinetics, indications, contraindications, side effects, precautions and facts, common preparations and dosage ranges.
- Appendixes of regular prescribed medications, trade names, checklists, indications, abbreviations and formulas.
