If you work with children, you must have this book. For more than two decades, Pediatric Injectable Drugs (The Teddy Bear Book), has served an important and continuing need for reliable evidence-based information specific to pediatric injectable drugs. The tenth edition of this invaluable reference has grown to cover 238 drugs commonly used in the treatment of infants and children, including 20 new to this edition. The Teddy Bear Book covers neonates through adolescents, with age-specific dosing and administration guidelines throughout. With three new editors, who collectively bring 75 years of pediatric pharmacy practice experience to the book, the tenth edition is the most thorough and comprehensive reference yet. As with previous editions, the structure of each of the drug monographs covers the following areas:* Brand Names* Medication Error Potential* Contraindications and Warnings* Infusion-Related Cautions* Dosage (age specific)* Dosage Adjustment in Organ Dysfunction* Maximum Dosage* Additives* Suitable Diluents* Maximum Concentrations* Preparation and Delivery* IV Push* Intermittent Infusion* Continuous Infusion* Other Routes of Administration* Comments Also included is a comprehensive list of abbreviations and more than 4800 references. This is the only pediatric (neonates through adolescents) parenteral drug reference that covers limited fluid amounts, maximum doses, and limited intravenous sites - issues that pediatric practitioners often face in their patients. When it comes to pediatric injectable drugs, valid safety and efficacy research can be hard to locate. This indispensable reference changes all that.
This manual is intended to guide the coordinated implementation of regular, systematic large-scale interventions that provide anthelminthic drug treatment as a core component of the joint and synergic control of helminthic diseases such as lymphatic filariasis onchocerciasis schistosomiasis and soil-transmitted helminthiasis. The manual focuses mainly on antihelminthic treatment, but other drugs used to eliminate other agents can be potentially associated to those mentioned in the manual; as a reference trachoma control through the SAFE strategy combining drug treatment with hygiene and environmental management can be associated to helminth control interventions to boost the overall health of affected communities. The greatest challenge is to extend regular anthelminthic drug coverage as a public health intervention to reach all individuals at risk of the morbidity caused by helminthic infections. Preventive chemotherapy should therefore begin early in life and every opportunity should be taken to reach at-risk populations. This manual advocates much greater coordination among disease control interventions. Because such large numbers of people are affected and are often difficult to reach, it also stresses the need to make the best use of all existing drug distribution channels to deliver anthelminthic drugs and aims at encouraging program managers to find other innovative means of reaching those in need in a sustainable manner.
There is still today much discussion about whether some drugs that the government deems as dangerous should be decriminalized. The U. S. Government imposes fines and imprisonment for the possession and use of marijuana, while the most harmful drug, alcohol and its known dangers, remains legal and extremely abused. The U. S. Government views itself as the worlds protectors, yet it imprisons many of its citizens for exercising the right to choose their own lifestyle. If it is a lifestyle that does not bring harm to others, why should the government interfere? This book, A casualty of war, the war on drugs, the war within, is a about a black soldier whose life and the lives of his family, were changed forever because of such injust and inhumane laws. William Francis was introduced to drugs during his first tour in Germany. For much of his military life he used marijuana to cope with racism and other forms of discrimination. The book details the external problems he faced in the military and civilian life and the internal war raging within him because of his religious beliefs. It tells how his wife views his use of marijuana; in that it poses a risk to the family's welfare and his military career if his use is discovered. She and others know that he is more than functional under the influence of marijuana. Determine for yourself whether or not what finally happened to William is justified. And then, if you can without bias and self-righteousness, determine for yourself if the laws are protecting people or unjustly depriving them of their right to real freedom.
