Pediatric Pharmacotherapy, Second Edition

Sandra Benavides, Pharm.D., FCCP, FPPA, and
Milap C. Nahata, Pharm.D, M.S., FCCP, FAPhA, FASHP, FPPA, Editors

Pediatric Pharmacotherapy focuses on the unique therapeutic needs of neonates, infants, children, and adolescents. Patients in these age groups offer challenges distinct from those of adult patients. Drugs behave differently in this population—medications may not be absorbed, distributed, metabolized, or eliminated in the same manner as in adults, causing increased or decreased efficacy or safety.

The second edition of this essential textbook includes updates regarding specific disease states, drug selection and use, monitoring of effectiveness and toxicity, prevention of medication errors, and patient/caregiver education. New chapters on acute kidney injury, oncologic emergencies, and adrenal insufficiency provide readers with information to positively affect care for patients with these conditions. Also new to the second edition are patient-specific cases in all disease-specific chapters, developed to help readers apply the information presented in each chapter. Cases highlight common pediatric disorders or diseases that may be encountered in clinical care in an ambulatory, community, or acute setting.

The vision for the second edition of Pediatric Pharmacotherapy remains the same as for the first: to create a resource to help students, residents, and practitioners learn about the unique intricacies of pediatric patients and pediatric pharmacotherapies.
