Description

Many physiologic changes occur with aging, some of which affect the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of medications. For many drugs, exact dosing guidelines for geriatric patients have not been established and most references do not specifically address the use of medications in the elderly. "The Geriatric Dosage Handbook" provides specific considerations when using drug therapy in older adults, compiled from the current literature and clinical experience. Updates to the Edition include: 14 new drug monographs; multiple appendix updates, including cytochrome P450 tables; new appendix topics including Lipid-Lowering Agents, Community-Acquired Pneumonia in Adults, Diabetes Mellitus Management, Adults, Heart Failure (Systolic), Target INR Ranges for Adult Patients With Prosthetic Heart Valves, and Treatment of Elevated INR Due to Warfarin. "The Geriatric Dosage Handbook" is an ideal drug information reference for all medical professionals managing geriatric patients. This resource contains geriatric-sensitive information throughout each drug monograph, including extensive content on drug interactions and drug dosing in the elderly and adults, as well as in patients with renal/hepatic impairment. This text follows an easy-to-use, dictionary-like format, with all drugs organized alphabetically. Tall-Man lettering is used to help distinguish between look-a-like medication names. A complete Pharmacologic Category Index and Appendix provide valuable supplemental information.
