This new and extensively revised edition of an established textbook presents a wealth of up-to-date information about drugs and the newer, as well as the older, therapeutic agents in a concise and readable form. Students of nursing should find it an excellent introduction to pharmacology, and graduate nurses may find it useful as a brief reference work and a source of information about newer drugs.
The major portion of the text is devoted to a systematic review of the basic pharmacology, clinical uses, and toxicology of drugs currently employed in medical practice. A list of available preparations is given for each drug and conforms with the current editions of the U. S. P. and N. F., and the 1958 edition of New and Nonofficial Drugs. Doses are stated in both the metric and the apothecary systems, and both nonproprietary and trade names are included. A bibliography of relevant published papers
