Pediatric Injectable Drugs (The Teddy Bear Book) Paperback / softback
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.
