Plumer's Principles and Practice of Infusion Therapy, 9th Edition provides concise coverage of basic and advanced infusion procedures.

You'll enhance your understanding and hone your skills with this edition's coverage of infusion therapy, procedures, standards, and equipment, along with practical new features and an emphasis on safety considerations, as well as evidence-based practice. Plumer's Principles and Practice of Infusion Therapy begins with an overview of IV therapy, including how to minimize risk and enhance performance, and then addresses assessment and monitoring; clinical decision making; patient specific therapies, and infusion therapy for children, the elderly, and across the continuum of care.

Nurses will also find step-by-step application features that address interventions and procedures while offering guidelines, equipment checklists, actions, and rationales for each procedure. And, end-of-chapter review questions allow you to assess your knowledge and reinforce the vital concepts you'll apply in daily practice.
