Here is the classic pocket guide to drug-dosing for patients with impaired renal function-in a revised and updated new edition! Easy-to-read tables put the information you need when determining dosages for more than 450 drugs at your fingertips. Plus, this new edition features brand-new guidance on pediatric dosing, making it the most complete resource of its kind.

  • Details the biochemical and physiological effects of drugs in patients with renal failure
  • Emphasizes those medications eliminated by the kidney as well as the importance of the patient's glomerular filtration rate (GFR)
  • Includes recommendations for supplemental drug dosing during renal replacement therapies, coverage of antimicrobial and antiviral agents, and much more

Because the kidney is the major regulator of the internal fluid environment, the physiologic changes associated with renal disease have pronounced effects on the pharmacology of many drugs. Manage these effects successfully with this handy pocket guide.
